I had 3 sets of blocks on my little design wall. Some were all dark, some all light, some diagonally half light/half dark, and some darks and lights across from each other in the block. I had sewn those groups to use for a demo at a guild program I did in May. I decided to try all 3 types of blocks together and see if they would play well together. I think this might be interesting but I really won't know until I sew a bunch more blocks and transfer this to a larger design wall. I don't design my quilts in a computer program because if I knew what it was going to look like, I wouldn't need to actually make it. For me the thrill is seeing the patterns emerge on the design wall.
I stayed inside all day yesterday. It never got out of the 50s and turned cold again by evening. I had to empty the dehumidifiers and put them away for the season. There were a few other maintenence jobs and then I worked on the pillowcase kits for Monday's church sew in. I have 20 kits ready now. Today my cousin and his wife are in the area and are stopping by to see me and then going to see Dad.
