Block a Day #6

This is all I managed to get done today from Block a Day.
Block #6, Poppy
I also reviewed the layout for the Tribute quilt.
Before I went any further, I contacted my friend Jeana .
I had so many questions about how to make this quilt more cohesive.
I wasn’t sure if I could combine abstract blocks with traditional blocks.
Each block is a symbol of something related to my mom, even the abstract blocks, such as Kitchen Work block.
I also had questions about sashing and borders.
Jeana , as usual, came to the rescue.
I am ready to continue.

Since I do not have room for a design wall, I decided to make a portable magnet design wall.
It gives me the quick visual I need without taking up space.

I purchased a magnetic white board and magnets from Wal Mart.
I used double-sided tape to place the block pictures on the magnet.
It is hanging on the door in my sewing room.
For now, it seems to be doing the trick.

  1. Ooh. That’s a really clever idea for a mini design board. I might have to give that a go for my quilt. I definitely won’t have the room to lay out the full size one.

    1. So far, it has been just what I need. A quick visual that doesn’t take up space.
      It is especially helpful when I am choosing materials for the blocks. I also made a template that I keep on my computer.
