On the Design Wall

I have a tradition of making a quilt for my great-nephews and great-nieces when their 12th birthday rolls around. 

The next one is in February. This particular great-nephew is a big Legos fan. I found this kit for "Bit 'o Color" at NaLa's after-Christmas sale. The blocks went together in a single day of sewing and watching the New Year's Day snowfall. I'm enjoying looking at them so much, I almost don't want to take them down and sew them together!

What's on your design wall today?


  1. I love the flashes of colour in the middle of each black and white block. Simple but very effective.
    I made some Lego play mats last week and posted the instructions on my blog if you need more ideas! :)

  2. Very colourful - a lot of fun!!
    My design wall has 2 blocks on it - waiting for #3 which hasn't been published yet...won't tell you what's piling up around it !!!

  3. I love the blocks and the fabrics are such fun. I need my kitchen finished then the machine can go back into its space and I can get on with sewing. Work starts on the 20th so not long to wait now.

    1. It was so much fun, I've decided to break into my BW collection and make another!

  5. Amazing how simplicity is so extravagant!!
    I love it. Might be just perfect for my black and white collection. I have collected for years, keep adding new fabrics, but have never been able to cut and sew....wonder if I ever will?

  6. Love it! Perfect for my 11 year old grandson!

  7. What a great black and white quilt with those blops of color. Now I know what to make with my similar pile of fabrics. Thanks for sharing!!

  8. Love this very bright cheerful quilt. Luck kiddo!!!
