on my design wall

today. I spent the weekend arranging and rearranging the blocks. They may or may not stay in this arrangement since before I start sewing them together I plan to embellish them.
I'll start with this one.

My erosion bundle is still there but you can barely see it since it's covered with snow. It's across from the birdfeeder, hanging from a hook on the woodshed.

Those blocks look stunning; very striking. Look forward to seeing how you're going to embellish them.

Great movement in those blocks. I don't think there could be any wrong way to play with them. Enjoy. xox Corrine

fun blocks. It looks great, but if you are still not sure about the layout - I like to use a small peep hole from it's cheap, small enough to carry around and it helps to see the entire quilt at a distance when it's right in front of you. (it's great for fabric shopping when planning a quilt - I never could get the hang of squinting at fabrics - I just pull out the peep hole that I keep in my bag and it helps a lot!)

Seems like you were in a bit of a slump last fall...but lately you've barrelled ahead full steam. And it shows. Can't wait to see these altogether!

This is simply breathtaking. Congrats to this piece, even at this step of the process.

Oh, these are beautiful and I can't wait to see how you embellish them. That's the fun part, like frosting on the cake.

What bright and cheery colors! How big are the blocks? Enjoy embellishing, with your wild abandon. :)

Hi Deborah! I love these blocks! They look very tiny, are they?

You are right, I can't see your erosion bundle. Love your colorful blocks!
