Design Wall Monday

It’s Christmas on my design wall today.

I pulled out a bunch of blocks made…hmmm… let’s just say “several” years ago… out of some very bright fabrics.  They need to be set together.  More blocks may be needed, many blocks need to be trimmed down to size – once I figure out what that size might be, some sort of setting has to miraculously shout out that “this is how you should do it” along with what type of sashing or blocks I should use to set them all together, and I need to go searching in the stash to see if I can find any fabrics to use to put this thing all together.  And all those poor faceless snowmen and Santas – but they’ll probably end up with button embellishments so those can wait.

One of my favorite blocks is the tangled up lights.

My first plan of attack – see if there’s any more bright blocks in the Christmas tops & blocks box.  Maybe there’s a few more that will play nicely with this group.
