Impromptu Design Wall

The board I usually use for a small design wall still has some other blocks on it.  These nine-patches were small enough that I just started taping them to a section of wall near the sewing machine.  It's not a very large section, but then this quilt won't be very large, either.

I made another 12 blocks today for a total of 34 (having removed 2 from what I had yesterday).  I haven't decided on size yet so I don't know how many I'll need.  And I'm still playing with the colors.  (The colors in the photo are not true.)  The blocks will finish at 4½".  If I use alternate plain blocks I'll need half as many as if I used only nine-patch blocks.  In a way, I wish I could make tiny nine-patches but I just don't think I have the time to make enough AND hand quilt the quilt before baby arrives.

So, that's may work in progress this week.  Plain and simple.

I'm linking to WOW at Esther's Blog and WiP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  Thanks, ladies, for hosting.
