What’s On My Design Wall

Yes, it’s En Provence, the Bonnie Hunter mystery. The pattern is still available HERE.

For two weeks I’ve been telling myself that over the 3 day weekend I would pull out the Blue Disappearing 9-Patch and quilt it. But, I just can’t move away from En Provence. I can’t decide if it is because I’m afraid it will be months before I get back to it or because I’m so close to finishing it.  Although “so close” in this instance is realistically close to 10 hours.  At least for the first couple of blocks they were taking me about an hour each to make.

There are two more up on the design wall.

Of course they may go faster now that I have gone through and pulled all of the pieces for each block so I don’t have to make that decision before starting to sew a block.

I’ve also swapped out my leader/ender project for the border.  For a brief time, I was sewing 1-1/2″ squares together for the postage stamp quilt.

Then I switched back to pieces for En Provence. I’m now sewing 4-patches together for the borders.  I hope that by the time I have the center finished, I’ll have the extra border pieced together.

I’ve tried webbing blocks together in the past, but have not had much luck. It’s working this time, and I’m convinced that it is making these blocks go together quicker than my usual assembly process. This is the bottom left corner block, so I have the bottom sashing attached.

As for the Blue Disappearing 9-patch? Perhaps next weekend.

See what others are working on over at Patchwork Times.

4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. I like all your greens! Purple and pink are not colors I have in my stash. Webbing is a different type of wrangling but can work well. I have not used it to assemble an entire top, myself. Organizing is sure helpful for all those many parts!

  2. Another Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt! They are fun to see in all their varieties. Love it!

  3. Looks good. You can do it! I like the Blue in the Christmas stars. Not everyone uses Blue in their Decor. I sure do.
