What's on my design wall Monday...

This is my This and That block of the month that I participate in.  We make two of the same blocks each month.  I just picked up the April blocks on Friday, which means I need to get them done and pick up the May blocks this next week.  Our monthly kits will end in June as we will have 12 done. The finished quilt will be 78 x 100.  What I really love about this BOM is that it is challenging me..and I've needed that this year.  You can go to www.patchworktimes.com  and see what other people have on their design wall today too.


Here are my fabrics for the Vignette hexagon quilt.  These Nancy Halvorsen fabrics were all collected with another quilt in mind, but this will be better.  I have loved her fabrics and designs for a long time and now finally have found the best use for them!  I am going to try the Accuquilt Go! die to cut the hexagons, hopefully speeding up the process up a lot.  Now for the Sewline glue pen to get here.  :)


The fabric for the Vignette mystery quilt has also been chosen. I am so excited to get working on this. It looks like it is going to be very bright and cheery...the bright part is a bit difficult for me to grasp, but I can go for the cheery...especially since the sun is finally shining today after a very long time. They are all Holly Holderman fabrics from Lake House Dry Goods.


Saturday I spent the day cutting out yet another quilt while celebrating Easter with my in-laws (there will be pictures to follow once there are blocks to show).  We had a great day visiting and actually had a large chunk of time to work on projects.  I've got a lot of energy and I'm ready to get to work.  :)  Happy Monday!

I love those blocks. It is nice to be challenged from time to time. That is going to be a lovely quilt.

Kristen,
I have a few blue and green Nancy Halverson FQs from her Whimsical line that I am not going to use-I'd be happy to send them to you if you can use them.

Your blocks look lovely and I love the fabrics you have chosen for the two Vignette quilts, especially love the hexagon fabrics, very beautiful!! I'm still struggling with what fabrics to use for the hexagons!
