I've been in the sewing room a lot the last week, but you can't tell it by what's up on the design wall. I'm working on the Log Cabin blocks for Back to Square One, as well as more half square triangles for the Road to Brenham project and triangle in a square blocks for the Christmas Angels quilt. So not much new up on the design wall. I have finished three more Scrappy Star blocks this month.
Scrappy Stars is my oldest UFO and has been my leaders and enders project this month. I don't have room for the other 32 finished star blocks on the design wall right now, but this is what they looked like back in February.

The other block that is up on my design wall is September's NewFO.
If you don't know what a NewFO is, you should check out the challenge page over at Cat Patches. I had hoped to be able to start Drama Teen's Batik quilt, but we haven't got the final layout worked out yet. So I looked through my patterns to see if there was anything else I wanted to start this month. A few months ago everyone was making Scrappy Trip Around the World quilts from Bonnie Hunter's pattern (which can be found here). I loved how all those quilts looked and really wanted one of my own. Since my scraps are getting out of hand that seemed like a good project to start now.

I made one block to test out the instructions. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to go truly scrappy or pick three colors for a controlled scrappy look.
That's it for both the design wall and the NewFO this week. Check out Patchwork Times for more design walls. Then hop over to Cat Patches to check out all the new projects.
