I have two different design walls today. First up is the Baltimore Christmas quilt.
I've been neglecting this BOM and thought I should try to catch up. This, I believe is probably the block with the most pieces. I'll apologize for such a terrible photo. The color is so off. See those candy canes? I painted the fabric before I cut out the canes and stitched them down. The gingerbread man and the holly leaves are the shrink film I mentioned in a previous post.
The other design wall item is actually on the computer. I've been hand stitching the pieces together for the Faithful Circle quilt and realized that I needed a schematic so I would know how many of what to make. I tried and tried to do this layout in EQ7, but failed so I resorted to my old standby CorelDraw. After doing this layout in CorelDraw I realized that I only had one!! full block to put together. I broke down the blocks by color:
• blue = 6 sides to stitch on -- 1 block
• green = 5 sides to stitch on -- 20 blocks
• yellow = 4 sides to stitch on --16 blocks
• pink = 3 sides to stitch on -- 76 blocks
This quilt will be totally hand pieced using the English Paper Piecing method and 1930's reproduction fabrics. I'm making headway but it's slow.
