It was a nice weekend otherwise. We did some much needed cleaning in Drama Teen's living space. We still need to tackle her closet, but I think we'll wait till Christmas break to do that. Even so I still got in a solid evening of stitching on Saturday and then was able to stitch most of Sunday afternoon. The bits and pieces I've been working on the last few weeks finally amounted to changes you can actually see on the design wall. All the 8.5" Log Cabin Blocks for Back to Square One are done and clue 9 was finished off by adding another border to that project.

It's almost too big for the design wall. Next are the star blocks that go with all those Log Cabins.
Back in September I started a Scrappy Trip Around the World block, which I didn't like. So I decided make a few more blocks using a controlled palette of green, yellow, and purple.

I like this much better, so I'm going to make a two more and see how that goes. I've only got one yard of that dark green. If I like the resulting set of 4 blocks, I'll make blocks till I've used up the green. That should give me enough blocks to make at least a throw sized quilt.
Only two new puzzle pieces made it to the design wall for the Jigsaw quilt.

So this one is coming along, just not as fast as I'd like. This week isn't nearly as crazy as last week was schedule wise, so hopefully there will be more time to stitch.
That's what is up on my design walls. To see more of design wall Monday, check out Patchwork Times.
