18.4 Card Trick Design Wall

August 15, 2011

Like an hour after uploading the episode, I went rummaging around my neutral fabrics.

Guess what I found? I found the background fabric that I needed for the card trick quilt I talked about in the episode!

So here are the blocks on the ‘design wall’ – one border short, and I need a little more for the kicker border.

And I’m just going to do a 2 inch finished inner border (to match the 4 inch finished outer border).  Of which I have a fat quarter, but really want the width of fabric size on this.

And yes, another smallish square quilt.  I tend to make these a lot, it seems. I like how these colors seem way more fallish.
