Well, I've officially used my new design wall for the first time. I used it to figure out the backing for my fandango quilt. Well, part of the backing. I had two half yard pieces left so I figured I'd cut out as many 6" squares as I could and use those, somehow, as part of the back.
I strained my brain (not really) and figured out how many squares I'd need to fill the quilt (top to bottom, not the whole thing), and then laid them out.
I liked what I was seeing!
And it worked out awesome! It ended up being a basic nine-square block and I still have a few scraps left over for a future project. Well, to be a small part of the future project. Here is a close-up of the squares to see the pattern. I'm not sure if it was the lighting, but I think that this [following] picture turned out a bit bluer than in reality.
I just need to connect the pieces. Because it's labour day weekend, I will most certainly not be sewing, but rather going to the lake. I think that the lake would probably be a good place to sew though.
