Design Wall Monday - April 19

 My design wall/floor today is holding all of the blocks for a Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt made from a block called Gingham.

I posted on Sunday about using the Dave Ramsey financial advice to "pay off the smallest debts first", and so I looked at my goals for the month.  This one was so close to being done, that it made sense to just dig in and finish putting that top together.

The photo above was taken before I rearranged a couple of blocks, but you get the idea of it.  I plan to get the top sewn together by the end of the week.  The gingham blocks are made entirely of 2.5" squares, then framed with 1.5" strips to make it a 12" finished block in the quilt.  

What is on your design wall today?  I'm linking up with:

  1. Good idea: get the little tasks out of the way first. And the gingham blocks are a checkered delight! Framing them really enhances the colors.

  2. Very cool quilt/block. I bet it takes a bit to get the exact right colors but well worth the effort.
