Design Wall Monday - November 25th

I love long weekends.  I get one this week since I'm off today.  I need to bake some cookies for Thanksgiving this afternoon.  Actually I'm not baking them Drama Teen is, I'm supervising. I also have to call in for a phone conference this morning, but it probably won't last all that long.   But other than that, my family has given me permission to spend the day in my sewing room.  I plan to take full advantage of it.  

A lot of this week has been spent getting ready to start the Starburst Quilt along.  I've starting cutting out the fabrics, but there isn't anything to show on that just yet.  A few more blocks have been finished on the Jigsaw quilt.

The second row of blocks are finished.  The color graduations aren't perfect, but Drama Teen loves it. Since it's her quilt, that's really all that matters.  Cutting the little tabs has been a challenge.  I find I have to lay the block out and fussy cut the tabs so they look right.  Some of the batiks have such strong color graduations that if you cut the tab from the wrong part of the fabric, it doesn't look right.  But I'm enjoying the process on this one.  It's been fun to watch it come together.  

That's it for the design wall this week. For more quilty goodness, check out all the links over at Patchwork Times.
