On Friday my design wall still looked the same as in my last post. Those blocks had been hanging on my design wall since June. I finally decided to just put them away for now. When I have a need for a baby/child-size quilt, they will become a finished quilt. Until then, since they have not been speaking to me for months, they need to go away.
This is my new project. It is a Mississippi Wheel of Fortune block. I am using paper foundations to piece it following a pattern by Karen Stone. The block on the left is finished. It was intended to be a table topper to tie in with this at Christmas time. Hubby, however, thinks it should be a pillow. We'll see about that. (This is a 20 inch block!) The block on the right is in progress. I'm not sure how many I will make. I have a good stash of batiks and could easily make enough for a large quilt. But I am undecided on if I want to devote that much time to a foundation pieced project. I will say that I love the colors so far.
