(Not Quite on the) Design Wall Monday Plan B – 07/25/2011

When I was unable to find satisfactory substitutes for the last two fabrics needed for my Strips That Sizzle quilt, I decided to switch my focus to this quilt design by Evelyn Sloppy.

It is featured in this book.

Julie over at Julie Quilts uses her first version of this quilt as her blog header and she is currently leading a quilt along with this project.  I’m a late-comer to the quilt along, but this is a project I’ve wanted to do.  Since all of the fabrics I'm using, except the neutrals in the border and sashing, are remnants from my hour glass quilt, I guess you could classify this as a bonus quilt. 

Here is some of what I’ve already done.

Here are the sub units that will become the nine patches in the sashing cornerstones.  They will be a perfect leader ender project.

By the way, my spell checker does not like the word “sashing.”  I just had to pull the book out and look at how Evelyn spelled it before I felt okay making this post.

Surf on over to Judy's blog and see what others have on their design walls this Monday.

That is so great that you can get another quilt from the leftovers of your hour glass quilt! It is looking good.

Mary I love those plaids that is going to be a great quilt. And I always think I've spelled sashing wrong! I want it to have a 'c' in there-I'm a horrible speller!

I'm thinking I may need that book! I can't wait to see more of your quilt!

Bonus pieces are great! This will look terrific. I know what you mean about sashing, my spell checker doesn't like it either :)
