Design wall.

Here's my design wall. The Wild Threads ( if you don't know,  the Wild Threads are my mini group) have been swapping bee blocks. We each pick our fabrics and a block design and created a kit (pizza box style) and passed them around on a little schedule. I picked a block out of the book, Block Party. This last month, I got to keep one of the kits with my blocks so I popped them up on my design wall to get a sneak preview. I can't wait to finish this quilt. Yellow, red and gray! So pretty together.

  When I passed around the directions, I didn't specify the orientation of the triangles.  Too bad, huh?  So I decided  I'll just  rotate the errant blocks around and fill in the gaps as needed.   

Just a few more months and I'll have all the blocks.  I can't wait to get this quilt on my bed! 
Btw, in a couple weeks, the Wild Threads are going on our first retreat.  I am so excited.  My job has been so stressful lately.  Johns Hopkins has been planning and building a new hospital for YEARS and we finally move into it in two months.  So much planning and so many changes.  Exciting and exhausting.  Retreat will be a very very nice break.  We are going here.  So beautiful.  If you have never gone on retreat with your friends,  you MUST GO!
