Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Design Wall Monday

Today it’s the ironing board.  I’m cutting the strips for my Fairy Frost Sunset.  Since I read all of the directions and made a sample block, I know that I can cut the pieces more efficiently resulting in bonus blocks.  Each strip set provides a 12 1/2 piece with a 45 degree cut, a 6 1/2″ piece with a 45 degree cut, a quarter square triangle and a 2 patch.  I  don’t think the 2-patches will play nicely with quarter square triangles, but I’ll cross that design challenge when I get there.

Today is the Guild mini-retreat and as I do for any retreat, I’ve over packed.  This is a handwork retreat, so I’ve got my DWR. Also in my bag so I don’t get bored, is the red work I’ve been working on for 3 years – I think this block just needs a couple of snowflakes, my dragonflies and crayons and fabric to make yo-yos.

Check out what others are working on by following the links at Patchwork Times.

3 Thoughts on “Design Wall Monday

  1. Ohhhhh what yummy “Fairy Frosts”. I’m getting ready to go on another retreat in November and we get to ‘swap’ some of those…I can hardly wait. Have fun, and it’s not bad to over-pack…just bad if you leave parts of your project or a special tool at home.

  2. I have some fairy frost fabric cut….has been since they first came on the market. I need to dig them out 🙂

  3. I always over pack for retreats also. I always think I will get more done than is possible. Love your fairy frost.
