design wall Monday

Ever since it occurred to me that I could use my Go! cutter to make crumbs into 1" finished half square triangles, I've been cooking up ideas for itty bitty blocks. This one will finish at 3" square.

I know, I've got two identical prints side by side. That's what happens when you try to make fabric choices with only the light from your sewing machine to go by. But I got the block together without letting any of the kids know that I was awake -- and I'm not ready for the daily stampede quite yet. I'd like to sit in the quiet house and listen to the birds just a bit longer before plunging into my day.

To see more design walls, head over to Patchwork Times. And be sure to check out my latest quilt for the Moda Bake Shop. I've been dying to show it off!

Delicious sewing before the stampede! LOL!

It took me a minute to figure out which two prints were the same ... I really think there's enough difference in the visible print that I'd have *never* noticed had you not said something!! Finishing at 3" square?! WOW! :)

It took me a lot of squinting to figure out which two were the same as well. I'd never have noticed! Congratulations on your bake shop project - I saw it earlier this morning and was so excited for you. That's great!

Looks great and I love the scraps in your block. I will have to check out Moda Bake shop, congrats!

Great idea to use your Go for the tiny Triangles. I don't have that Die. I don't see a Duplicate piece, the color may be close but it is not the same part of the pattern so it will be ok, right? Have a great day with your stampede. There are days I wish I still had kids at home to greet me in the morning.
