Design Wall Monday

Here's what my design wall looks like today.



Now, you're probably thinking, "It's a baby quilt in the making."
Nope, it is the remainder of the mens dress shirts from this quilt. I'm piecing a backing out of them. I think I may cut each row in half to make the pieces square-ish, rather than leaving them as rectangles, but it just may 'stay as it lays'

We'll see later this evening.

Check out all the design walls today at JudyL's blog.

I like the rectangles. Great job using the leftovers.

I vote for the current rectangles. They are interesting in their own right and once they are quilted they will be very interesting.

Or you could off set the rectangles. Just a thought.
Great use of material.

I like pieced backings. It makes the quilts a little more fun.
