is placing a small design board to keep my block layouts clear and understandable for piecing, right in front of me while I sew.
This set-up allows me to keep the blocks scrappy and keeps me from mixing pieces up as I sew. Crazy as this may look, it works for me! lol
Belle has been humming along in the evenings piecing Scrappy Bento Box Blocks in my effort to make a quilt from this charming block.
Just to prove that my mad method for block piecing actually works, check out my progress.
From another view, here's the line-up (not arranged in their final layout, just yet). I think with a bit more piecing, I'll have a quilt top!
I want this to be a quilt for our living room to coordinate with the scrappy red pillows I made a little while back. That should make the room merry and bright (while putting a dent in the stash of reds I seem to have accumulated... ha! we know that won't happen. Not unless I stop adding red fabrics to the stash. Shhh... please don't tell the man of the house that it's a losing battle. lol).
