Design Wall Monday--7/19/2021

Sharing photos of my finished quilt top and back for the Positivity QAL in yesterday's post inspired me to pull out my original set of Positivity blocks. You may remember my earlier post HERE, which included in-progress photos of 36 completed blocks. I only need to make 12 more blocks to complete this quilt top, but they have been sitting in a box, neglected but not forgotten, for close to a month. It's finally time to pull them out again and move forward with this quilt!

Here's the photo I shared in June of the original 36 blocks.

My plan was to continue the gradation of the grey background, adding a row of blocks at the top and the bottom using even darker greys. Yesterday I put half of the original set of blocks up on the wall, then laid out one of the darker rows. The two blocks at the left end of the bottom row have been stitched; the rest are just pieces up on the design wall.

After I finish putting together the other four blocks in the bottom row, I think I will get all of these blocks joined together. That will mean half the quilt top is done! Then I can concentrate on making the last six blocks for the other end.

Happy quilting everyone!

  3. What a great version of the Positivity quilt. I love your gradation.

  4. Such a pretty set of blocks. You nailed the gradation of the grays. Enjoy finishing up all block and row stitching.
