What’s On My Design Wall

I’m still working on the Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler Swap block top.  I really wanted to finish it this weekend, but I also wanted to go to a quilt show.  And there was the trip to the mall and Jo-Ann’s for inspiration and fabrics for the Eeyore quilt.

Having said that, I am on the home stretch.  There was one block in the mix which was 1/2″ bigger than it was supposed to be and too many points around the edge, so simply trimming wasn’t going to work.  Remaking the block really wasn’t the answer.  Making a new block had its own set of issues.  I finally decided on a solution I can live with.

I’ll take pictures of what I did and then after I get the top done, I’ll post how I ‘fixed’ the issue.

Meanwhile, check out other design walls by following the links over at Patchwork Times.
