Design Wall Monday Week 5

I have a fully cut, partially arranged and partially sewn, grandson six point star quilt on my wall. It was actually one of my UFO challenge quilts, but impatience got in the way, and I simply couldn't wait to work on it. There will certainly be more for him than just this one. It has used some of the fabrics that have come into the house this year, but only a strip or 2 from each one. The pieces are cut small, so the individual prints don't show up very much, but emphasize the colour contrast instead. I think I will do something like a Yellow Brick Road style quilt that will have pieces big enough to showcase some of the really cute fabrics. But, I like the colour play in this arrangement. I have to work this afternoon, but am hoping to get a row or 2 sewn before I go. It was a rough weekend at work, so I don't have a lot of energy to spare for much else. This is the first Monday in a long time that I've had to work. But, there are so few hours availabe, that I have to take what I can get, and am grateful to God for them. Go on over to Patchwork Times to see more wonderful and inspiring design walls.


  1. That is going to be beautiful when it is done. Wow, a lot of work on each of those. Can't wait to see more.

  2. I love the stars! Is it a published pattern or your own? I'd love to do one too.

  3. Great quilt and I love the arrangement too.

  4. This is a great layout...it will be fun to sew!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
