I don't usually post the design wall on Monday, but this week I have something on the wall. It's the same thing, at about the same stage of completion, that was on the wall last Monday too. I'm still fighting a messed up sleep schedule and a cold, so haven't been very energetic.
This is five orphan blocks which I am putting together for a service quilt. After I make some more nine patches, there will be an outer border cut from a panel of alphabet flower blocks, also pink, green, and yellow. That should bring it up to size for a very feminine lap quilt, or I guess, a crib quilt for a little girl.
And speaking of nine-patches, does anyone else find them hard to make when they're cut from scrappy squares? (I'm not strip piecing because I want more variety than that allows.) I don't seem to be able to line up the little pieces accurately, and on a small block the mismatches really show up.
