I'm happy to report that would be me! I gladly took myself upstairs on Saturday to work on arranging and sewing together my embroidered baby animals in pajamas blocks. When last you all saw them they looked like this...
My original idea was to sew them together with a sashing of 1 1/2 inch solid squares but the more I worked on that the more blah the whole thing felt. Those little squares were just so distracting and busy. Not at all what I wanted. Out came the seam ripper and with some re-imagining on the design wall this is what I came up. Now this owly little darling is a flimsy!
Much cleaner and more contemporary looking I think. Now days nurseries tend to be a lot less cutsy so I think my DIL will appreciate this design better as it tones down the babyishness (I know that's not a word but it's what I want to say) of the whole thing. I have no trouble arranging them asymmetrically but I know some people just can't do it. Where do you stand, can you put those blocks off center or not?
This green polka dot is from my stash and will be perfect for the binding! Shop your stash there's great stuff in there waiting to be rediscovered. I have a wonderful soft white minky for the backing or maybe a fleece. The girls at Needle Nellies at our Wednesday meeting will help me decide.
That's it for Design Wall Monday. What have you been up to?
