On the Design Wall: Baby Mish Mash

It's a cold rainy day here and I'm keeping busy trimming blocks and getting them up on my design wall.  I *love* this part.  It's finally looking like a quilt.   Doubt always creeps in at the block construction stage.  I wonder if I chose the right fabrics and the right design.  It's always a big relief when they go up on the wall and play nice together.

I learned how to makeHSTs from Amy during Round 2 of the ORBC quilt along.  For this quilt, I started with 6" squares and I trimmed them down to 5.5".  Baby Mish Mash is coming along great.

If you're curious, here is a picture of my zig zag quilt from ORBC Round 2.  Round 9 is just starting with a Ticker Tape quilt.  Come on over an play!!  Instructions can be found on DeeRoo's blog and the flickr group is here.

Brrr, my fingers are so cold today.  Time to warm them up with a hot cup of coffee!

Later Peeps  : )
