And you picked...... on Design Wall Monday

So I put on my best Monty Hall plaid sport coat and you  picked.... Door #2!!!! Applause, applause! Now when I posted the poll last Thursday I was certain that no matter what the outcome I would sew it together in the Door #1 mode. But the more I read your comments and the more I looked at it Door #2, I could see it was a winner.


All the rows are sewn together and I really like the look of the black and white prints with the Kaffe fabric. Thanks for inspiration Melinda!


There was a comment that the black and white prints are low volume. I hadn't thought of them that way, but if they are the are hanging with the wrong crowd cause the Kaffe fabrics are the heavy metal guys in the room - LOL!


I found this fabric last week at Joanns for the back. Now to get this one packed off to my long arm quilter.


Like any week I have high hopes for lots of sewing time, tempered with the knowledge that there are lots of other things I am committed to do. Painting woodwork at my older son's house, chauffeuring duties for my younger son, appointments with contractors... its going to be a busy week. But the upcoming weekend is Memorial Day and that off day  next Monday is looking pretty sweet.

Happy stitching-
