Not much up on the design wall this week, as most of my time went towards figuring out what to do with UFO #5. I posted yesterday that I realized the originally selected patterned background fabric wasn't going to work. I bought new fabric to replace those, but still didn't like how it was working out. Thanks to all who suggested using more of the lighter background fabric, that made a huge difference.
Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of light neutrals in my stash, so it's back to the quilt shop. This pattern is derived from Folk Art Christmas Stars by Robyn Pandolph for Moda Fabrics. The pattern I'm working from was adapted by Vicki McGowan, who taught the class where this quilt was started.
The only other sewing room activity that occurred this week was prepping the templates and cutting out the pieces for block 7 of the Moose on the Porch Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along.
The background pieces still need to be cut out. I really hate working with templates, which is why this block is still not done. Hopefully by next week both block 7 and 8 will be up on the design wall with the previous blocks.
That's it for my design wall this week. For more design walls, check out Patchwork Times.
