This is my first ever Design Wall Monday post. I was stitching these blocks together this morning and said to myself, "You ought to take a picture and write a Design Wall Monday post." So here it is. Dangerous thing is I've turned the computer on hours earlier than normal which could sidetrack me for the rest of the day!
I finished these 3 dimensional Bow Tie blocks about a month ago. I stitched part of them as leaders/enders during another project. Since I finished the Checkerboard Squares quilt Saturday, I decided it was time to get back to these blocks.
Yesterday evening, during commercial breaks in the Harry Potter movie on ABC Family Channel, I stuck the blocks on my design wall, twisting and turning to get as many seam allowances nested together as possible. There are 2 places where I could not find a way to nest the seam allowances and had to stitch through 6 layers of fabric instead of 4.
This morning, with Dr. Who on BBC America, I sat down and stitched the blocks together. I also cut the inner border from the blue background fabric and attached half of those strips. The outer border will be more of the darker print.
