Design Wall Monday and Have a Latte Hop!

Today begins the Have a Latte Hop and here's the full schedule.

I'm way down near the end on April 22nd, so keep coming back to check out all the awesome projects each day. 
This is a really fun collection and while I was waiting for my fabric order to arrive, my mind was swirling with ideas, and not just from the lack of (or too much) caffeine.  :-)

Now for what's on my design wall today...

This is my version of Moroccan Tile by Amy Smart 

I have the rest of the blocks ready to sew and then the fun of laying them out begins. Can you see where I folded each unit to find the center? That makes lining up the units so the two horizontal purple pieces line up accurately on the two sides of the longer vertical strip so much easier. (And that makes me so much happier!) 

My version is going to be a bit different, besides the obvious color changes. I don't think I'm going to border this, and because I'm using 25 Poems from Pebbles strips left over from another project, I have quite a few extra blocks. That means this is either going to be one big quilt or two smaller ones. (Don't you love the way I plan my quilts?) :-) 

The pattern is in Amy Smart's Fabulously Fast Quilts, which just happens to be the door prize I donated to the 2015 Hands2Help Challenge
(I had two copies of the book.) 

I'm also donating a cone of Sew Fine! thread by Superior Threads. It's color number 403 (Putty), which is a great neutral piecing thread. 

That's 3280 yards of thread! 
You can get some serious quilting done with this thread.  

That sure was fun and it's been a joy to read the comments and e-mails from people. It's such a great challenge and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.

So, what's on your design wall today?

Check out the eye candy of other quilters today.
