Design Wall Monday 7.8.2024

We are in prep/vacation mode here at Bell Creek Quilts. While hubby was dressing the tree bases with rocks then washing the windows, I was working on trimming some scraps into usable pieces. I decided on 6.5 x 6.5 inch squares, 4.5 x 4.5 inch squares, 2.5 x 2.5 inch squares, 2.5 x 4.5 in rectangles, 2.5 inch strips and 3.5 inch strips.

First I sorted out the patriotics from the cutting table pile.

Then I moved onto the solid or solid reading fabrics. I did find a few pinks that look like they would make good hst's.

Next it was time for the novelties.

I also had another bin and bag of red, whites and blues. So I sorted those, too. I found the rail fence blocks in red/gray and believe it or not...the rectangles are 2.5 x 4.5 inches!

I did pull and start to cut for a dog quilt but I was having trouble concentrating. Better to leave it and return when I can focus.

I have another Marshall's bag full of fabric leftovers that need to be sorted and cut into usable pieces. Maybe that will be my August goal. :)

pattern: Cherrydale from Villa Rosa.

I'll be heading out in a little bit to meet up with DD at my in-laws cottage. We are spending a few days there then retuning to Bell Creek Quilts. Next Saturday, we are hosting our first Family Picnic. Family is coming in from Texas, Wisconsin, Virginia and of course, Michigan to visit with each other!

Sharing today with Judy at Design Wall Monday.

That looks like a good bit of work that you went to, cutting and organizing all those scraps! (I should take a page from your book, lol!) That looks like a neat pattern to feature a focus fabric. Have a great time at the cottage and with the family picnic, too!

Nice work on all the organizing! Have fun at the cottage and entertaining the family.

Boy you are a cutting fiend! Looks like you processed a lot of scraps. Great Job. Your doggy quilt looks like it will be very cute. The doggy fab is adorable. I have made many a dog quilt over the years but haven't done one recently. Hope you have a successful family gathering.

I did the same thing last week. It took me two days to cut all the scraps, but it feels good to have it done. Enjoy your time away.
