On the Design Sheet

I have the attention span of a gnat lately.  Hid away in the sewing room again last night and the photos show what is hanging on the design sheet (can't call it a design wall because it hangs in front of the wardrobe doors - consequently most things appear wavy):  two new quilts started.

The first quilt is for Michael and Peta to give to their little Godson for Christmas - the lower black/white strips, blocks with blue surrounds and ships/ocean strip are not attached yet.  I love the bright, happy colours in the ships/ocean strip and have more of this to use as an outer border.  I need to cut black/white strips to the correct size - these were leftover pieces from another quilt that I put up so I could see how they would look.

I also made two of the Civil War blocks for my "Not Quite Civil War" quilt

"Catch Me If You Can"
"Underground Railroad" - see what I mean about wavy?
This quilt will be made using pink/hot pink/crimson fabrics along with Moda Bella Solid Baby Pink from my stash.  I enjoyed making these blocks - nice sized pieces to work with.  Some of the pieces in Sylvia's Bridal Samper are tiny - I have so much admiration for those making Dear Jane.
