Blue and White for Two's Company

I really loved making this block!  While I was working on it, I kept thinking, "Man this is a satisfying block!"  I like the bear claws block, love blue and white, and really love the fun blue snakeskin fabric I found while making the aqua confetti quilt!!!

I think all the variety of blues in everyone's bee blocks are going to look great together.  (Check them out here.)  Hooray for the first blue and white quilt in our bee!  Hope you like it, Mary.

Quilt Top Finished

I finished this quilt top in just the nick of time to show at our NYC Metro Mod Guild meeting last Saturday.  Hooray for a "deadline" to give me the extra push I needed to get it finished!

In making this quilt, I hung a temporary design wall for the first time.  The only space big enough was my entryway.

It created a little chaos to have it there, but it was so helpful to be able to see the whole thing at once from a distance.  Now I love seeing the finished quilt top hanging there every time I walk down my hallway.

Do you use a design wall?  Where does it hang?  Any great temp design wall suggestions?
