30 Something on the Design Wall

One of the reasons I wanted to finish the HST Donation Top/Back was to free up space on my large design wall.

I have a lot of pieces and part ready to sew together for the 30 Something top and I was having trouble envisioning how the whole thing was going to go together. I needed to get it on the design wall.

I have to say that I was kind of regretting cutting all the pieces for this quilt. Once I saw it start coming together, I got really excited. I think my fabrics look a lot better than the 1930s vintage and repro fabrics in which the original was made.

My background is an Art Gallery black on white called Raise the Volume from the Capsule Collection. I love the look of a background  the doesn’t change amidst all the vibrant scraps.

I have been thinking about the title of the quilt. 30 Something just doesn’t cut it and I don’t like it anyway, but the quilt was not speaking to me in terms of a name. As I put the parts on the design wall, I realized that some of the blocks were Churn Dash blocks and I thought of the name Scrap Dash. I’ll have to see if it sticks.

Anyway, I am having fun with this top now.

  1. That’s an excellent background fabric. It’s interesting but not “too much” on top of all the scrappiness. I’m looking forward to seeing this one come together.
