Design Wall - Super Bowl Sunday

Did you celebrate Super Bowl Sunday by sewing or by watching TV? I'm sure you can guess what I did!


I had some friends over to sew the Quiltbug Super Bowl Mystery quilt called Peekaboo.
Here are the fabrics I started with which are way, way far away from the recommended colourways. But I really wanted to use up stash fabric, and it was a challenge to get the necessary yardage.



Here are the blocks from the 4 of us who sewed the mystery. We each chose very different colours. The one closest to the recommended colourway is the floral pink, green, and yellow which is the column of blocks second from the left.
It was a great day of sewing and these are some of the possible layouts I came up with using my blocks.

layout #1

layout #2

layout #3
layout #4

layout #5

Which of these layouts would you pick to be your favourite?  To see more design wall postings, hop over to Patchwork Times.

I just love the first two. The top design has such a great secondary pattern while the second looks like flowers. Great progress. Such a fun way to spend time during the super bowl

What a fun way to spend Super Bowl Sunday. I must say I am partial to the first layout. I look forward to seeing which way you end up going with it.

I like # 3 a lot--the diagonals are neat...with those crosses...hugs, Julierose

I like 4 or 5. They look like dragonflies to me. I did sew in the afternoon and the evening was movie night with hubby! No football fans in this house!

I vote #3. It is interesting that we all like something different. It's what makes the world go around. Enjoy your day.

I trimmed HST's and tore papers out of blocks while I watched. Multi-tasking!

Layout #1 and #3 are my favorites. Layout #5 is rather interesting too. Mysteries are fun. Sandi

I vote for #1 but I do like #3 almost as much and I am also drawn to #5 so I guess I am no help

Nann said...

I like layout #3. I listened to an audiobook until it was time for Downton Abbey and Mercy Street -- sewing all the while.

I like #1 the best :)

I can already tell that there's not going to be a "winner" and that all the layouts will be someone's favorite. I like #3.

Tough call--I love chains, but I also love diagonal patterns.
It is so clever the way the one block looks like a corner is folded back and the color is darker on the other side.

Needled Mom said...

So many great choices. My pick would be #1.

Jeanna said...

Cute blocks. I think layout 3 is interesting.

Mary said...

I think you need another row of blocks for the chain type layout in the first one. My fav is the zig zag one in layout #3. How fun to sew with Friends. I was at Church most of my day and didn't watch the whole game...not a fan of EITHER team. I saw a couple of the commercials and wasn't impressed much. Seahawks fan for life!

Looks like you all had lots of fun sewing yesterday!
Your blocks are very pretty!
Several great layouts to choose from but my favorite is the first option.
I'm sure your quilt will look beautiful whatever you decide.

I love layout #1 and #5. The colors are great

Stephie said...

Layout 1!

Kate said...

Layout #1. I always enjoy seeing all the different colorways people choose.

Layout one would have been my pick, but it's too late for my opinion now...lol
