Design Wall Monday – 04/04/2011

Bob and his brother, Dave, spent the day playing doing chores at the ranch and I unexpectedly found myself with some time to sew.  Yippee!  Much of the time was spent working on the March installment of the Civil War Chronicles Block of the Month.  This quilt has a lot of points to match and a lot of piecing, but the most challenging part so far has been dealing with some fairly obvious directional prints that are used in the half square triangles.  The blocks are made and the top row is sewn.  With any luck, it should be ready for our group's gathering later this month and I will be able to stay on schedule.

Be sure to check out Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times  and see what others are up to! 

Happy stitching!

Yes, there are hundreds of HST so far - and I believe there will be 700 HST in the border alone, and approx. 2,000 in the entire 108x108 quilt. Nice work! I've been cutting out my HST with the AccuQuilt, but have also ordered a Triangulations computer program to try. How are you choosing to complete you HST?

Looks wonderful, I love it!! I try to pick fabrics that don't have one way patterns because it drives me crazy when I don't get it right!!

Looks like you are managing those points just fine!
