Custom Queen-Size Barn Raising - Progress #4

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

This is about half of the blocks on the design wall.  I start laying them out at the offset diamond and work out from there.  My design wall is only large enough for a lap quilt, and it works out okay for me.  At the height it is, I already cannot reach the top and must use a small stool to put blocks that high, so I'd need a ladder to reach any higher!  My method is to piece these blocks together in columns {two together} and then...

move the very bottom row {#11} to the top of the design wall to maintain the pattern and then continue placing blocks below it.  There will still be six more columns of blocks added to the right side of what is shown in these two pictures.  It is 16 x 16 blocks.

Someday soon I plan to make a Barn Raising for myself!  It is my daughter Millie's and my favorite quilt pattern!
