Weekend Stitching - Progress on Multiple Fronts

It's hard to go back to work after four days off.  Other than the headache on Friday, it was a nice weekend off.  Drama Teen and I had a great time shopping and meeting friends for lunch on Thursday.  The rest of the weekend was spent on household chores and a lot of time in the sewing room.  

So what's up on the design wall?  A couple of Wonky Stars for the QOV block drive going on over at Alycia Quilts.

I've got some blue stars cut out but not yet assembled.  I'm hoping to get at least five or six stars out of this set of left over fat quarters.

The big design wall has the progress made on the Midnight Mystery Quilt.

Since this photo was taken, the blocks have been taken off the wall and the I've starting adding the black framing pieces.  October's clue should be finished up by next weekend.  

You can check out more going sewing room happenings over at Design Board Monday, Main Crush Monday, and Monday Making.

  1. Your wonky stars are lovely, I only ever made one quilt and it was definitely a learning curve, I'm thinking maybe I could have a go at another one, perhaps wonky stars.

  3. Good-looking blocks! I like your wonky stars. I have a set of stars from a bee I participated in earlier in the year. One of these days I'm going to sew them together.

  6. I find you very courageous for entering such a Mystery QAL. I don't think I would work on something without knowing how it would work together in the end. The red in your block looks really smashing
