Minglewood Layout So Far

Hello Everyone,

I've been playing around with the layout for Minglewood on my computer.  I haven't decided yet if I'm going to put the center applique in mine or not.  I also need to decide what color border and sashing I'm going to use.  A rusty red border..........

or a black border.  I'll have a better idea once all of the blocks are finished.  The 12" blocks have been so much fun to make and I've learned a lot while working on them.  It has been a good opportunity to really refine my piecing skills.

I finally worked in some green and more purple. in this Double X block.

This is not a hot pink in the Christmas Star block, it is more of a magenta.  Not quite sure what my new camera saw through the lens on this block!

The shop is still taking sign-up for the Minglewood Monday program HERE.  The program starts on the 15th of July which gives me some time to make more blocks! 

I have a busy week ahead.  I'll be at the shop today cutting and packaging fabric for Minglewood.  Tomorrow I'll be teaching The House on Edgewood Lane at the shop.  On Wednesday, I'm teaching Summer's Blush at ThimbleCreek in Concord.

Hope all of you have a great week.  I'll have lots of pictures to post from classes soon.

As always,



  1. Those blocks are just gorgeous!!! Are these the fabrics that are going to be used for the BOM? If so, I am starting to cave.

  2. How about two quilts, Lynn - then you can use both borders!! I think I'd have a hard time choosing - they both look terrific!

  3. I, of course love the drama of the black border! So gorgeous!......Kaaren

  4. They are lovely blocks. I like both borders, so think I'd have to have a narrow black followed by a wider red one.

  5. I like the black one but I suggest putting a small small red flange right next to the outer border. This would even be fun to make a topper to lay at the foot of the bed! Stunning and looks like fun with such a variety of patterns.
