Design Wall Monday 4-12

It’s been awhile since I posted to DWM… but that’s because it’s been awhile since I’ve done enough sewing to make any kind of difference.

Although I don’t have a picture of these actually on my wall (they really are up there… on the third floor… on the design wall – honest) I do have a picture of them in a pile as I was working on them.

I now have half done… the pitiful 5 pieced blocks that had stood alone for so many months now have company and are hopeful to be completed…

look no iron 003 (Medium)

I have made a little headway with the applique blocks… but not nearly enough to brag about.  I’ve got a new batch of them prepared to stitch…Peas in a Pod 004

Here what they are suppose to look like…

Peas in a Pod 014

UPDATE ADDED:  Sorry… I should have thought to add the info on the source.  This pattern is called Peas in a Pod in the Kim Diehl “Simple Comforts” book from That Patchwork Place.

I’ve mixed some Civil War fabrics I had already in my stash with the new Moda Civil War Homefront line.

Again – sorry I didn’t add this originally.

Welcome back to DWM - I love your pattern of the applique/ square blocks. What book/ magazine are you using?

Love this scrap quilt. Such an ingenious design. Was this featured in a magazine or a book? Where can we find it?

Have a great day.

Wow, interesting design!, this one will be great when it's done! Keep up the good work, it'll get done one block at a time.
