Design wall Monday

Here's what's on my design wall today - a gazillion sister's choice blocks. I'm trying so hard to use up scraps and stash. It's a slow process. It's also a good thing I like scrappy quilts.I had this basket with a bunch of miscellaneous repro fat quarters and six or eight small (like 4 1/2 inch) 9-patches. Using the fat quarters, I made a bunch more 9-patches, but they were so small I decided to raid the beige and brown stash and scraps and turn the 9-patches into sister's choice blocks.

I think I like it. It's definitely going to be machine quilted - too many seams for hand-quilting.

That is a lovely quilt. I really like that pattern, and might just have to add it to my "want-to-do" list

I really like your quilt. I may need to dive into my scraps, too.

This is such a beautiful quilt. I love the blocks. If I were a good sister, I would make one for each of my sisters :)

Your scrappy fabric choices seem really coordinated. This style of scrap quilting is my all time favorite. I like all the warm colors you are using.

Beautiful! You have always been (and continue to be) so talented. I just can't get the hang of quilting. I think the problem might be my cutting skills :-)
