Design Wall Monday 8/30/10

I showed this picture on Friday, but am thinking that everyone might not have seen it. The book that the pattern is from is Strip-Pieced Quilts by Maaike Bakker.
 
These are the blocks that were created from the 17 strip sets that were on my wall last week. Seventeen strips from 6 different fabrics.... 102 strips. I can just imagine how easy the cutting of the strips would have been with an AccuQuilt GO! cutter. *sigh*
 
I'm hoping that I can start piecing the rows together this week. :)

I am really liking this quilt. A GO would have made it easier but the work is worthwhile for the results.

I just finished a black & white quilt and love the way it turned out. This design is beautifully striking!

That's going to be beautiful!

I have a GO. Sad thing... I haven't USED IT YET!! And even sadder? I've had it since Christmas!

No matter how many times you post this quilt, it is fabulous.

Cathy said...

Wow! the depth and the movement in that quilt are wonderful!

I'd like a GO cutter too! The triangles are looking fabulous. Lots of movement happening for sure!

Your fabric arrangement turned out gorgeous. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Isn't it funny how we all want what we don't have. Though it might have been quicker with a GO, it would have been even quicker to go buy something ready made. Where's the fun in that though?

What would you do with all that extra time if you had a GO! cutter?!?! LOL
