Design Wall Monday - Finishes of a Sort

Sunday wasn't one of my better days.  I ran a low grade fever most of the day, struggled with a sore throat and runny nose.  Drama Teen thinks I've caught the cold she had a couple of weeks ago.  I'm not much better this morning, so I'm taking a sick day.  Hopefully I will feel more myself tomorrow.  Hopefully what follows is readable, I have the fuzzy brain feeling that seems to be the norm when I have a cold.   

I did get into the sewing room for a bit over the weekend, when I wasn't in bed sleeping off the cold medicine.  Now that the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler is off the big design wall, I can move on to something else.  For a very brief time this weekend the Inverted Star blocks were up on the design wall.

The red-violet block in the center of the bottom row was finished up last week.  The plan is to frame all the blocks, but I'll need to check if I have enough of the tone on tone white from the blocks to do that.  I have a plan B if there isn't enough.  

Grand Illusion is still up on the other design wall. The plan is to finish up the blocks for this project in March.  I'd like to get this one to the finished flimsy stage, off the design wall and keep it off the UFO list.  No picture this week as it hasn't changed much from what I showed last week.  

That's it for my design wall this week.  You can find other design walls posted over at Judy's Patchwork Times.

  3. oh wow, great pattern for RCS. I think I might want to use this one too. I really want to join in this year. Get some rest, cozy up with a soft quilt, some chicken soup and a good book. Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

  17. We've all got that same cold, too - way to share it through the computer! ;) Love the Inverted Stars - it's a nice feeling to finish up all the blocks for an RSC, isn't it? I've started seeing more finished GIs, and it's got a lot of movement in it once it's done. So finish up yours, too. :D
