On my design wall today

These 14.5 inch 30's reproduction blocks are on my design wall today - but they'll probably come down today, too. When I finished Southern Stars I started looking for another UFO to finish and these came out. I'm just not into them right now, though. I have no idea how to set them, for one thing. Also, I have somewhere in my stash muslin purchased at the same time to use in setting them, and I can't find it. I just have to wait until it shows up, I guess.

So, I think I'll put the double four-patches, which were a leader-ender-use-up-leftovers project on the front burner and see what happens.

Here are some more design walls to look at, thanks to Judy.

Very pretty blocks. It can take me a while to decide on a setting for a set of blocks. Hope the fabric and ideas materialize soon!

The sampler blocks are so pretty - it looks so clean and feminine.

I hate when I can't find things I know I have -- somewhere. No doubt the muslin will show up when you least expect it. I might set them with sashing of some "go with" color and use the muslin for the corner stones in the sashing. (Is that the right term?) Then do a couple of borders. (Why do one when 2 or 3 would be fun!)

Lovely blocks. I lose stuff all the time, but it does show up. Maybe your 30s quilt is just not ready yet, :)

I love those quilt blocks. They remind me of quilts that my grandmothers made!!! Hope y'all are doing well. Thanks for your concern regarding the tornado. We are fine but lots of folks are not fine. It is unbelievable. We were without power for about 8 hours total. Some folks were without power for a week or more!

I have blocks that come out every once in a while and eventually they find a home. Of course, sometimes it takes several "reveals" before the right setting jumps out and a quilt it made. Your blocks looks like they will make a wonderful quilt.

"Around here someplace" is a phrase I'm familiar with. Hope you find your muslin so you can put this UFO to rest. The blocks look lovely.
