Design Wall Wednesday – November 2015


Welcome to Design Wall Wednesday – I thought that now I have a flashy new design wall, I can share some large scale WIP projects with you.

This month, we have my Trellis Crossroads bee blocks – which have been waiting long enough for me to lay them out and finish off my beautiful quilt. The pattern for these blocks comes from the Modern Bee —13 Quilts to Make with Friends book.

Because I asked my wonderful hive mates for scrappy blocks of just one colour, I was planning some kind of spectrum quilt.

I’m not 100% sold on this layout yet, but I do love the way the different colours mix at the corner intersections.

Warm to cool wow!

For some reason I feel like a proper rainbow order should go from the top left to the bottom right corner. All I have left to make is one block, the pieces of which were supplied by one of my bee buddies, and then finalise a layout and put it all together.



What is your preferred order for a rainbow quilt? Would you put the pink blocks up with the red ones, or keep them where they are?

    What a fun block! I will need to put this on my list for do.Good! I can see how the pink would give the design more balance near the purple but I usually put the pinks with the reds. I wonder if it’d help to take a pic in B&W and look at the values.

      Agnes, thankyou so much!! That is always the first advice I give anyone, but apparently I don’t give it to myself!! I’ll do that and see about moving them around 🙂

      Thanks for visiting Jamee! It’s been tweaked a bit, and is nearly ready for quilting. I’m glad to hear I’m not the only rainbow addict around 😉

    This looks great! I think the pinks could be at home in either place, but I do like how you have it arranged now.

      It is one of those rainbow “grey” areas, but I am really happy with the updated layout and it’s nearly ready for quilting!! Thanks so much for your visit Raquel 🙂
