Design Wall Monday 6/13

My design wall has one more of these 3' blocks on it. I used that one block for leaders and enders while sewing the rows together on this picnic quilt top I put together.

I have a wedding open house to go to later this month and so I pulled out the picnic quilt blocks that were from a swap last year and I will gift this quilt to the young marrieds.

I'm going to miss this quilt. Even though it has just been a pile of blocks, they made me happy every time I came across them, thinking of when I would put it together and quilt it.

I love seeing your winding ways blocks. I keep wanting to try one but haven't yet. You scrappy quilt is cool too. Is that a Moda Bake Shop pattern. I made a similar one.

Winding Ways is on my bucket list--yours looks great.

That's a nice gift for the newly marrieds--glad it made you happy to see it and think about it. A good omen for a newly married couple :)

I got my blocks put together last month but I have no one in mind to give it to right now. So it may be given to Project Linus. It's a good size for an older girl.

What a happy quilt. I know the "young marrieds" will love it. I have wanted to do a Winding Ways but every time I think about it someone writes about how difficult they are. Is that right?
