24 blocks on the wall .......

The paper is still on the back of the blocks so I had to use pins to hold the blocks on the design wall.  I think I need to add more busy prints in the rest of the blocks.  This will look a lot different when the dark strips get added.
I sewed these 3 before I saw the photo on the computer of the 24 on the wall.  I think they will all work well in the combination.  I will probably pull all of the rest of the batik strips that I had chosen and substitute in more Kaffe prints.
I haven't quilted any large pieces in the whole month so just in case I don't get one done today, I'll have to consider my 8 little preemie quilts as my finishing accomplishment for the month.

I'm digging these fabric combos... it's going to be a spectacular quilt!

It is going to be striking! Glad I don't have to pick all the paper off though.

Ruth said...

Yes! It will be stunning! I don't have any fabrics like these as I major in Civil war reproductions, but I'm liking them very much!

Hi, Wanda!

I agree with your idea to substitute more Kaffe fabrics for batiks: The blocks that really draw my eye -- in a good way -- are the ones that have one busy print and one quiet one.

The whole piece is shaping up beautifully!

They look fabulous! More Kaffe prints are on their way to you right now. Maybe they will work in the mix. In fact, I think they will be wonderful additions to what you already have.

Connie said...

They look beautiful Wanda, it is so much fun to see all the combinations you have come up with. This is definitely on my list......soon.

Wanda, I don't want to mess with your head, but your blocks actually look good against a light background as well. I would have never thought that until I saw your photo.
