On the design wall…

Triple Bee Blocks

Blocks from The Triple B Bee.  Just have to make one myself to add to them and then I can put the quilt together!  Not certain of the lay out but this is going to be a lap quilt that lives in my sewing room.  I went with a darker color scheme than I usually do but I’m interested in using different kinds of color combos these days…  We’ll see how I put all of these together.

Charm Squares

And all 44 charms from a Robert Kaufman Kona charm pack!  Aren’t they pretty all laid out like that? RK have been so generous and have donated these charm packs to Modern Quilt Guilds that want to organize a solids challenge.  Of course the L.A. group jumped at the chance!  Having them up there is getting me inspired…

    I love the color combo of the brown with the blue. I mean … I’m obsessed with that color combo now!! Can’t wait to see this quilt.

    I can’t wait to see how the brown and blue comes together, it looks exciting so far!

    Love your approach. For someone like me, I’ve never made anything like this. It looks complicated. And fun.

    OMG…I have the same charm pack with the same challenge in the St Louis MQG… I have a design in my head, but need to stew on it a bit…

    Can’t wait to see what you do…
