Design Floor Friday - Sew "B" Style

Welcome to another edition of Design Floor Friday!!!  After my Monthly Quilt Bee last Saturday, Needleb and I decided to make a day of it.  Sewing the afternoon away.  Sewing into the evening hours.  It was SEW productive!!

Britt started right in on laying out her Pecking Order blocks:

While she worked on that, I sewed the last pairs of rows together for my own Pecking Order quilt:

Once the final panel had been created, I went on to assemble the first half of the quilt top:

Britt played with her block layout:

I continued on and assembled the second half of the my quilt:

With design decisions made, Britt counted up how many more blocks she needed to make for her chosen layout:

I like to press BEFORE sewing two halves of a quilt together:

Almost done...

With the final seam sewn, my Pecking Order is a completed top:

Ta-Da!!!  I absolutely LOVE it:

Here's a close-up of a block with some dark BLUE for the RSC...

... And a shot of the single block with ALL the colors of the rainbow:

Here is the final layout of Britt's quilt, sans borders:

Once my Pecking Order quilt top was done, I was free to play with my scraps in dark BLUE for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

Britt moved on to auditioning border options:

This pair may well be the winner:

Pairs of scraps for June's Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

LOOK!!  Spots and dots in shades of dark BLUE to add to the mix:

Next came another batch of pairs...

... And Britt's first sewn row:

Then, I spent some time arranging the pairs:

Britt approaches the halfway point of sewing her rows...

... And I filled my quilted thread catcher (made by Britt!) with bits of dark BLUE, as I trimmed the sewn pairs to prepare for the next step of the process:

Looking GOOD, B!!  Here.  See for yourself:

Linking up with Cynthia for Oh Scrap!

Until next time...
