Scrappy Stars just needs one more border before it's a finished flimsy. No pictures of it today, the last 6.5" border makes it too big to photograph in my sewing room. I've been playing around with names for this one, Luminous Stars is my current front runner, with Elegant Stars the current runner up.
Other than Scrappy Stars, the design wall doesn't have much on it. The September Inverted Star block was finished yesterday.

It's definitely bright.
Since I've finished two quilts, with a third almost ready to send out for quilting, I gave myself permission to start a new project. Amanda over at Sea Breeze Quilts is teaching a beginners class at her local quilt shop, but is also sharing the blocks on her blog for one month so others can sew along. The blocks are posting on the 15th of the month, so you still have a couple of days to get the instructions for blocks 1 and 2. My version of block 1 is almost done.

The pink is a bit brighter than it shows in the picture. I've always wanted to make a brown and pink quilt, so it was just too hard to resist starting this one. It's going to be a good stash buster too, I noticed while I was cutting out the dark pink fabric for the second block that the selvage had a date of 2007 on it. I'm pretty sure most of the fabrics for this project date from about the same time, except for the pink in the block above, it was purchased last year.
That's it for me this week. Check out Patchwork Times for more design walls.
