It's Monday, and once again I have something on my design wall. For starters, I have a new wall. I used to have a sheet of flannel attached to my wall with Velcro fastening tape. It was only attached at the top of the wall. Blocks had a tendency to fall off when the flannel was disturbed by air movement. Now I have some insulation boards covered in flannel and screwed into my wall. I haven't had much chance to try it out yet, but I think I'm going to like this new version better.

Some of the blocks for my recent project.

My current piecing project is a crib quilt. I am using a pattern from the book Scrap Basket Surprises. My quilt will be a variation of the quilt 'A Little Tangy'. I'm still trying to decide which way to go with this one. Although the pattern calls for a completely scrappy fabric selection, I am using a constant fabric in each block. But I'm not sure if I want to alter the placement of the of the constant fabric. If I do, I'll get this quilt.

Or, I could put the constant fabric in the same position each block. That would give me a quilt that looks like this one.

Either way, I think I will be happy with the end result.

Your quilt looks so happy - I love the colors! I prefer the the layout where all the blocks are the same, but I am guessing that's because I am so anal!

You are gonna love the new design wall. That's how I did mine, and I've never been sorry!

Love your colors! I'm still using the flannel pinned to the wall but I need to work on improving my design wall. Yours looks real nice.

I kind of like the first layout because it looks like the little whirly things have feet. lol

I like them both but the ordered side of me is drawn to the second one
