Design Wall Monday

I shouldn't be, but I am....I'm pulling fabric for a new quilt!

The pattern is Big Ten by Swirly Girls Design

and here are my fabrics.

Now I have to explain that a couple of months ago I bought set of four one-yard cuts of fabrics with no idea how I would use them. The set included the following fabrics from the picture above: the bottom fabric (which I LOVE and the main reason I bought the set), the fourth from the bottom, the sixth from the bottom and the eighth from the bottom. I brought the set home and pulled what I thought might be coordinating fabrics and set it aside. Well, when I saw the Big Ten pattern, I knew that would work so I got serious and pulled other fabrics. I did have to buy some additional fabric (the dark fabric along the right side which will be used as the frame for some of the blocks and one other orange) but I was ok with that. Actually, I have too many fabrics now and I have to decide which two don't get used in the quilt center but that shouldn't be too difficult.

Anyway, that's what's on the wall now and I can't wait to start sewing. Unfortunately my week is looking pretty busy so this might still be on the wall next week. We'll see......

Check out what other quilters have on their design walls!

Boy you had be counting with your report (wink). I think your mix of fabric will make up well in the Big Ten project. Sounds like you are doing a great job keeping fabrics moving in and out of your stash. Anxious to see how this one comes together. Sandi
