Design Wall Monday - Putting Jigsaw Back Together

We had a quiet weekend, which makes for a nice change after the hectic week of travel.  Saturday was dedicated to laundry,  housework and a shopping expedition to replace the built-in microwave.  The microwave died last weekend. After finding that all the new microwaves on the market won't fit in the existing space without extensive modification, it's off to the shop to see if we can get it fixed. 

We all stayed home on Sunday, which allowed for a full afternoon of stitching.  A couple of the Jigsaw blocks have been restitched with their new "tabs" and blocks for the last row have been cut.  It's starting to come together again.

I'm much happier with the block placement, all the un-sewing of last week was definitely worth while.  

The last of the green blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Sampler project were also cut and sewn.

The sampler is definitely colorful. The final setting will be different, but this one works for now.  I'm thinking of using a thin white sashing between the blocks.  There's still a half year of blocks left to make for this project, so there will likely be other thoughts as to the setting once those go up on the design wall.  

That's it for my design wall this week.  For more quilters eye candy, check out Patchwork Times.

  11. Two terrific projects! The jigsaw definitely transitions more smoothly now, so your undoing and redoing were rewarded!

  12. Your sampler block quilt is coming along beautifully Kate.

    What a bummer about the microwave space. Hope the repair on the old one isn't too costly.
