Speaking of new, there is new project up on the design wall this week. Barbara Brackman's year long block a week and history discussion of the women's suffrage movement, Grandmother's Choice, started Saturday. The first block is finished.

The green background is darker than what I've typically used for a background. But I like how it came out. I'm using a fat quarter bundle of Moda's Decadent Victorian for this project. The other colorway in the line is cream with the purple. I've not decided if I'll switch back and forth on the background fabric, or if I'll stick with the green.
The other project that's seen some action this weekend, is the Layer Cake Quilt along project from Moose on the Porch's 2010 BOM. This is UFO #11 on my list.

Nine of the twelve blocks have been framed. I'll probably move the blocks around again once all of them are framed and separate the blue blocks a bit. I've tried out several layouts and nothing seems to work well. Any suggestions?
That's what is up on my design walls this week. I'm linking up with Patchwork Times as usual. Check out the other labors of love posted there.
