Design Wall Monday

Didn't get much time to sew this weekend, but knowing that Design Wall Monday was right around the corner, and I didn't contribute anything to Patchwork Times last week - I found enough time to work through the first block of my EQ quilt.  Made the first one up in scraps, to make sure I had measurements right.  Then had to change a few pieces so I wouldn't have set in seams to work with.   Seams didn't line up 100% right, but I knew what needed to be changed, so I went right to the real fabric -

And I am very happy with the results.  It went together quicker than I thought, and since the other blocks are 9 patches, this entire quilt should go together pretty quickly - at least until I get to the borders !  And in case you forgot what the finished quilt WILL look like .... (God willing)

This looks really fun. I love quilts with exciting borders. They really set the whole quilt off. You aqua color really makes it POP!

I love the black in the blocks. It always sets off the other colors so well. This is going to be quite a stunning quilt.
