Design "wall" Monday

This morning I pressed the pairs of blocks I'd sewn together last night and started laying them out on the floor.  This isn't the final arrangement - I need to spread colors around better - but it gives you the idea.  

Yes, it is an incredibly busy quilt.  Probably too busy for my taste.  And that's OK.  A pop-up tent trailer is quite plain on the inside with mostly neutral colors.  The quilts on the bed really spice up the interior.  This will never be a favorite, but it will serve its purpose beautifully.  I won't hesitate to lay it in a grassy field for a picnic.  Or wrap it around myself on a chilly evening of games outside on the picnic table.   It was a great leader-ender project.  Best of all, it used lots and lots of fabrics that I'd never choose to buy now.

This is six of the eleven rows.  I guess I'd better get back to sewing!
