Amethyst, block 2, of the Grandmother's Choice BOW was finished. Sewing with templates is something I haven't done much of. I may need to start marking the stitching lines at the corners because I'm not quite getting those right. But the Amethyst block came out OK as long as I apply the galloping horse rule.

Most of the machine time this weekend was spent on UFO #11, the Layer Cake Quilt Along project from 2010.

I finished framing all the blocks and started assembling the blocks into rows. I'm not in love with this quilt, I'm hoping the borders will help tie all the disparte blocks together. The layer cake included both colorways of this line, but the two colorways don't mingle well to my mind. But I'll finish it and probably use it to practice doing my own quilting, something that's been on the to do list for several years, but I've not actually done yet. In a number of ways, this quilt has been a good learning experience.
That's it for the design wall. I'm linking up with Patchwork Times as usual and hope to have some time this evening to check out all the eye candy posted there.
