Design wall fun

My learning style means I need to see how a piece will work and having a design wall is something I couldn’t manage without. I’m playing with Churn Dash, a traditional nine Patch block but reversing segments and finding new patterns where the blocks overlap.

Blocks all pieced and now to quilt. I know many people get anxious at this stage but I love how new patterns can be created by focusing or centring on one spot. I love using Westalee rulers especially for circles. I marked the middle of the blue square and sewed 6 inch circles from there.
