Design Wall Monday - January 7th

It was a long weekend.  We spent most of it perched on bleachers watching Drama Teen and friends play volleyball. It wasn't the most successful weekend on the court in terms of wins, but the girls are all getting better and what games they did not win, were pretty much nail biters. 

Unfortunately, being at the courts really put a dent in this week's stitching efforts.  Even so, all the borders did get stitched to Evening Star Saturday evening, so it is now a finished flimsy. 


Pattern from Calico Carriage
Designed by Debbie Maddy

Sorry for the dark picture, I didn't have a lot of time yesterday to get good photos.  Next step is to get the back pieced and then send it off for quilting.  

While I had all the photography equipment out, I finally got a shot of the finished  Fat Quarter Stars quilt (which was finished back in November).  


Fat Quarter Stars by Konda
of Moose on the Porch Quilts

I'm still looking for a name for this quilt.  It's intended as a gift for a family friend who is a mathematician.  At the moment, "Counting Stars" is the front runner.   

Neither of these are actually on the design wall, but there hasn't been much change in what's up there this week.  Hopefully, I'll more to show on that front next week.  You can check out all the other design walls over at Judy's Patchwork Times.

  4. Seeing stars, are you? Both are lovely. I just spent a lot of time trying to come up with something relating math to astronomy as a name for your quilt. The best I could do was Constellations. There were other obscure terms, but over my head.

  6. Two gorgeous flimsies Kate.

    Im hopeless with names so you're on your own but you definitely have to go with something with Star in the title.

  7. LOVE Evening Star! It looks fabulous! And I like Barbara's suggestion of Seeing Stars for the other one. Maybe I'll steal it for my fat quarter stars. ;)

  9. lovely quilts. The star quilt is gorgeous finished and that border is so dramatic. Lone stars are awesome and yours is great. I think Calculated Stars is fun!

  12. Lovely flimsy! Quilting will only enhance the star.

    Naming quilts is hard, but looking at this one is very easy!
