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!
