Design Wall

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  My weekend was spent playing with all of my HST's.  I came up with a whimsical pattern that will include scrappy applique.  Its kinda a spin on Aussie quilting/ Kay Fasset/Piece-o-Cake.  Seems that style of quilting doesn't require a lot of matchy-matchy.  
 All of my sashing pieces are made.  Now for the corner blocks.  
 My very technical way of choosing HST's is to throw them all in a bag and shake. I started with over 700.  Not sure how many are left in the bag.   Another quilt,  maybe two!
I used quite a few in my Basket quilt that still needs a border and a name.  The middle seems so busy that I might just keep the border simple.  A small blue border with a larger yellow border to finish.  
I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times.  Jump on over and see what others are working on, tons of inspiration!
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"

  1. Another great idea for my shirting scraps. I could make a gazillion HSTs. You are a wicked enabler.

  2. I can't wait to see what you add to those scrappy sashings.

  3. Lea,
    We must be on a similar wave-length, because I have been pondering a blue quilt!
