Design Wall Monday - October 24th

Monday, already?  Most of last week I was lucky enough to be on vacation, though the first two days of the week I was out of town on business.  It's hard to do much on the blog when I'm traveling for work, so there was no Design Wall post last week.  I'll make up for it this week.

Block 2 for the Moose on the Porch Fat Quarter Stars Quilt along is done. 



My block is simpler than the pattern provided.  I just liked the cleaner look, especially when paired with the first block.

All the blocks for the purple and yellow quilt have been sewn together.  


The original pattern didn't use borders, but I'm going to add a couple.  That may mean ordering some fabric as most of the purple I have left is all as fat quarters.  I really like how this one is turning out.  This UFO almost didn't get finished becuase I wasn't thrilled with the first 3 blocks made in the class.  It definitely deserved a second chance. 

Progress was also made on the Geisha quilt.


I'm not setting the blocks this way, there will be dark blue sashing between the blocks in the final quilt. 

That's it for my design wall.  Hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times to see other design walls.

  6. You are being productive. Love the motion that shows in the purple and yellow. Part of the punch with that quilt is the way the two colors sparkle in the setting. Of course a couple of blocks wouldn't show you that. Good for you to keep trying. I might have given up!
