New Year's Day was quiet around here. Most of the day was spent in my PJ's in the sewing room. It took a bit to get going, after all madness of the holidays and finishing up three projects, it seemed strange to be moving on.
So what's up on the design wall after the one day "sew in"? Block 6 of Moose on the Porch Fat Quarter Stars Quilt along was finished.
Block 8 comes out soon, so block 7 needs to be stitched today or I'll be behind again.
The first NewFO project is the McCall's Quilting Mystery quilt. Part one was in the Jan/Feb issue of the magazine. After much auditioning of fabric, here's the palette for that quilt.
All 4 pieces came from the stash. I've had the yellow with the tea cups and strawberries on it for a while. It's actually a bit brighter than shows in the photo. Hopefully the blocks for part 1 will be up on the design wall next week.
I also pulled out the box that contains UFO #5 for Judy's 2012 UFO challenge. Scrappy Stars dates from 2003. I don't think I've touched it since then. So it took me a while to reread the pattern, sort through the fabrics and decide what direction I was going in. No pictures this week, but hopefully this one will also be up on the design wall next week. I'm going to try to piece it as a leaders and enders project while I'm working on the stars and mystery blocks.
That's it for my design wall. I'm going to grab a second cup of coffee and check out what's on yours over at Patchwork Times.
