Monday Design Wall -- Blue Monochromatic

The Monochromatic Challenge for July was blue over at Patchwork Times -- but I have been busy quilting tops and have not done too much on the design wall. I started playing with 5" squares, however nothing is sewn. I thought about keeping July SMALL -- maybe a pillow or two. But I just could not help myself. Looks like this will be another big one. The fabric has snowflakes so I am hoping to finish by Christmas!

Added a few corner pieces -- then I remembered tessellating blocks I made several years ago. I don't have the pattern, so there is lots of playing until things started working.

Then I tried on point -- not really, just turned the camera! I need to quit playing because I REALLY need to finish quilting the top below.

Can you keep a secret??? This Saintly Creation is for a retiring employee, which will be just in time for football season. She already knows a quilt is coming, because I make quilts for those who retire in our department. I will show the whole thing after it is done and gifted.

Although late, I am heading to Judy's Patchwork Times and linking up to her Monday Design Walls. Well -- back to quilting tops.
