Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s on my Design Wall

It’s something new — sort of .  My  Blue Ridge Beauty blocks which I started back in May in Bonnie Hunter’s class.  I’m making this roughly twin size.  I’m winging this as far as block placement goes.  I’m starting at the top of my stack of blocks and sewing them according to my layout diagram I printed from EQ7.

This was my leader/ender project, so now it’s time for a new one. I’m leaning toward Color Play in Volume one of Sew Scrappy Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection magazine.   (I looked for a link on the BH&G website and couldn’t find one. This link is the first one that came up when I did a web search).

I’ve gotten as far as dumping my 2 1/2″ precut squares on the ironing board.  I can’t decide if I want to let it be “anything goes” and just sew a lighter square to a darker square (probably the fastest way to get started) or pick a “theme”.  The quilt in the magazine used green, red, yellow and blue prints, stripes and polka dots.  Regardless of what I decide, I’ll have to buy the sashing and border fabric.  I don’t have 3 1/2 yards of a “solid” in any color — well, maybe bright yellow, but I don’t think that’s the answer.

  1. I need to get in the habit of doing the Leader/ender technique. Your Blue Ridge beauty looks good up there. Glad we could meet up and see the Expo together. THANKS again!

  2. Great scrap quilt. Love the 2-color feel to it but with pops of other colors sprinkled throughout.

  3. The colors are marvelous in this! 🙂

    I love different blues, great quilt. I really enjoy Bonnie’s patterns.

  5. wow nice use of value and blue!! I really like the layout of these blocks!

  6. Love the Blue Ridge Beauty…it was one I was absolutely certain I would make when I saw Bonnies, but still hasn’t happened. Too many quilts too little time. Got your URL and am adding you to the Challenge today. Thanks for joining us. Hugs, Finn

  7. I am so enjoying my first leader ender project. I hope it comes out as wonderful as yours 🙂

  8. Wow! Your developing quilt looks so different from my plaid version…love it!

  9. Anyone who can complete a Bonnie Hunter (read little pieces) has my admiration. I took a class with her and have about half the blocks done for that quilt but at home it was not as exciting as in the class. I also started one of her New Year’s mystery quilt but it is a UFO also. Someday……

  10. Love your BlueRidge quilt–do finish it
