Design Wall Monday 2/11/13



This is my version of Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street.  It's much further along than in this picture but I have it all laid out getting borders measured and there is no good picture-taking light over that table.  Anyone else have this problem??

I elected to go with a straight set instead of the on-point setting because I like the strong diagonal lines that the pinks give.  Whew - that's a lot of pink for me.  I'm the only girl in the house, we don't count Izzy, and there is often debate if we should count me!  I am way more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt than in pink girly things.  But I am liking it and I am sure that if I don't keep it someone somewhere will swoon over all the pink.

Hop over to Judy's blog to see what other talented designers are up to.

  3. I prefer the straight set too...I also didn't care for the plain green squares in the block centers (the one with the purple flying geese)so I added purple wings to them (like we did with the aqua squares in the other block)...really adds more movement. I was really torn whether to use pink or green...finally decided on using green because my husband would never have used the quilt if it had all that pink. Really think yours looks great in pink.
