What’s On My Design Wall

These 15 blocks from Eleanor Burns Victory Quilts are on my design wall today.  I’m trying to decide if I want to make the other 5 and how I want to set them.  But of course meanwhile, I’ve got a couple of other projects racing through my head.

There’s the overflowing 2″ strip box and the overflowing 2 1/2″ strip box.

As much as I want to root around and find a pattern to use these strips, I keep reminding myself that I have plenty of quilts which need to be finished.  Besides, Bonnie Hunter has promised us a mystery towards the end of the year and hopefully I’ll be able to find what I need from these boxes.

There there is a quilt for my niece who graduates from high school in the spring. Her favorite color is turquoise and she’s not fond of paisley, but other than that any thing goes.  I think I’m going to draw my color inspiration from the fabric peeking from under the strip boxes – but that is as far as I’ve gotten.  It’s a good thing I have 7 months to get the quilt done.  It may take me 6 to figure out what I’m going to do!

In the meantime, I’m going to follow the links over at Patchwork Times to see if I can find some design inspiration from what other quilters are working on .

4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. love THIS QUILT BECAUSE I made one just like it. I did the on point setting. Great job.

  2. Adding the dog is unusual in this patriotic quilt. I might be inclined to add from the remaining blocks the block that ties the dog in…oh I just noticed the plane so perhaps you don’t need anything else. Sometimes these quilts just get so big… Last I saw mention 11/17 is the day Bonnie’s new mystery will make its way to us! Can’t wait to empty one of my 2 or 2.5 inch containers!!! Sandi

  3. Your sampler blocks are looking great!

  4. I just noticed my overflowing 2 and 2.5 strip drawers and was thinking of adding to my strip blocks that I started last winter. As for the setting on your EB quilt, I tend to want to do something different than the suggested settings so my blocks get to hang out on the wall for a while, in between other projects, until they suggest where they want to go. Sampler quilts are great but can become boring if they are all set alike, in rows.
