Design wall Mon... Tuesday and Lovely Finish Goal

Design wall Tuesday is a bit of a mess... but lots of fun.

I've got my Craftsy BOM blocks up as I get started on the March ones... also everything else I'm working on at the moment :0)  The basket block is still unpieced as I add in extra fabrics as I cut them.  I am really starting to see the basket appearing from the background, but the pink section  is still a bit washy, I might recut these elements to make them more contrasty.

Anyhoo, the March blocks are both string blocks... this one didn't quite turn out how I had it pictured in my head.  But it is kinda growing on me.

And after playing around with a few different layout options... I DON'T think I'll be going with a no sashing option... just too BUSY!!

The second March block is a spider web star block.  Haven't started this one yet.  I've had a peek at next months blocks, and they are EPP hexagons... I hate hexagons!  Do I force myself to do them because it's all about learning new skills, or give them a miss because I really want to enjoy what I'm doing?  I know which option I'm voting for - what would you do?

Also racing around my head has been choosing a possible finish for the Lovely Finishes challenge.  After my epic fail last month, I'm choosing something that I can finish.

Finally, after much too-ing and fro-ing, I'm going with getting my Swoon top together.  I still don't have a photo of the last two blocks... SLACK!

I can do it!


  1. I recognize some of those Craftsy BOMs. Love your choice of fabrics -the text fabric makes your blocks so interesting! Swoon blocks are quite lovely!

  2. Enjoy what you are doing or you won't do it! And that Swoon quilt is going to be luverly (especially the orange dots in the corners - nice contrast ;) )
