Design Wall Monday 3/1/2021

We were so fortunate with our weather over the weekend here in north Georgia, with beautifully warm days just meant for long walks and sitting on the front porch. That warm weather has also helped the spring flowers. This was the first of our daffodils to bloom, and there are many more now. 

The anticipation of spring always makes me want to play with bright, cheery fabrics in my quilt projects. Fortunately, I have two current projects using 1930's reproductions that fill that requirement. Yesterday I pulled out all 20 of the blocks I've made for the Sewcialites QAL, sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop

My blocks will finish at 6", but the patterns also include cutting instructions for 3" and 9" blocks. Imagine how tiny some of those pieces would be for 3" blocks! It has been so much fun to go through my box of 30's fabrics each week and choose which one to use for the next block. The patterns are scheduled to continue until mid-June, for a total of 36 blocks. Here is the official final design, but I probably won't do this layout with my blocks.

You can still find the patterns for all of the Sewcialites blocks at the Fat Quarter Shop blog. They are a great source for fun quilt-alongs, with a new one, the Serendipity quilt, scheduled to start in two weeks.

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Spring always makes me want to sew bright happy colors too. This winter I've needed those colors all winter grey skies! LOL Beautiful blocks.

  2. I love your fabric palette for Sewcialites!

  3. How fun to have daffodils peeking out. I'm in No Virginia but we've had so much rain I haven't been going out much to even see if we have daffodils. Thanks for the info about Sewcialites. I like having new blocks to use in all sorts of projects. I'll have to check them out. Your blocks look great. Are you making more? Or sashing? Or adding quarter sq triangles in between?

  4. I have downloaded all those files but I haven't made any of them yet. I'm not sure what size I want to make.

  5. It's a fun collection of blocks in very springy colors.
