Design Wall Stall

I am back to my  design wall... sort of.... I have had a few too many other projects.. and thankfully - client quilts that needed to be done.... so I sort of put my design wall on hold.

Good thing my family loves me, they don't mind it being stagnant ;-)

Yesterday was a QOV sew in - so now I am all inspired to start back in on the project stalled out on the wall.... ready???

This is where I left it - the center is all sewn.
but the top kept talking to me - It was loud too!
it said I am not done, I am feeling nekkid

So I started making some border type pieces

It still didn't like just the blue....
so I dug until I found some pink....

I am thinking maybe a little pink in the border might brighten it up?

We will see if it speaks to me this week or not - 
there is a lot of additional noise going on out here 

For more design walls head to:

Glad you have dusted off your design wall again. Me too. Your quilt will tell you what it wants to be when it grows up, don't worry. I like the piano key border idea.

Gotta love those talking projects! Improv piecing is so much fun. I love the direction this is taking.

This is really fun! I'm glad you're working on it again. I remember seeing it before, but had completely forgotten about it. That pink in the border will be a great pop of color. I can't wait to see how this looks finished.

This is a really interesting composition. I am excited to see how the border comes together!

What a great quilt! I love the low volume and the blue...gorgeous! It helps to walk away for a while. I find that eventually an idea will come to me and I can get back at it again!

What a fun quilt to work on! I like the added pink border, it pulls in the small pink pieces fro the blocks!

The pink in the border really brings out the pink in the blocks. I like the surrounding neutral too.
