Monday Design Wall - Pieced Border

The August color is pink for Judy's Monochromatic Challenge, so I need to hurry and finish the blocks for the blue --- I need an empty design wall. Here is the top coming together with a pieced border. All the blocks are 5 1/2" and if you notice, I am using 5 1/2" white squares for the corner quarter units (they are blending in to the design wall). This will come in handy when I start quilting.

It's Monday and you know what day this is ..... Judy is hosting her "link-up" at Patchwork Times.

Love the color placement...

Wait, I swear I cut out a gazillion little blocks to make a miniature version of this quilt. I wonder where the blocks are as I know I never sewed them together... hum sounds like another UFO lurking in the wings... thanks for sharing

I so wish I had your design talent!! But in the absence of it, I will just shamelessly steal your ideas (but give credit where credit is due!) This is going to be a fabulous quilt, Jamie!!

Double like those border blocks! The tiny squares will frame the whirlyjigs nicely! I see more of your free-motion feathers in that corner you speak of.

The border is an excellent complement to your center blocks! I like your mix of block sizes.
