Design Wall Monday - Week 41

Swooning over my design wall still.
I'm done with the biggest blocks (24") because I'm out of full fat quarters.

I double-seamed the flying geese and saved the HST leftovers to see if I could reuse them in a 16" block. The answer is...yes but... There is just enough of Fabric B (the star) to do the same Fabric B in the smaller block. However, I don't want repeats in the same place, so I'm saving the HSTs for another project or the back.
Of course, there's plenty leftover of both fabrics from double-seaming the 16" flying geese, so those will get re-used in the 8" block and save me a few minutes of cutting and sewing.

Check out more design walls at Patchwork Times!


  1. It really is looking fantastic!! Are you thinking 5 or so more small blocks to finish the top? You are so clever! ;-)

  2. I love collecting those extra HSTs from double-seaming. :)

  3. Love all sizes of Swoon blocks - these are wonderful!

  4. What a great idea, to do various sizes of the same block. It gives it a whole new life and dimension.
