Monday Design Wall - October 22nd

After 4 days off work, this morning is starting way to early.  The girl's weekend was a success.  My Mom had a great time, as did the rest of us.  But my sister and I have to head back to work today.  Mom and  the Drama Teen get one more day off before they head back to normal life. 

Not much sewing happened this week since it took a couple of nights prep to get ready for our trip.  I did some embroidery one night of the trip while we were sitting around talking, but that was it for sewing activities during the trip.  I did manage a couple of hours in the sewing room last night after we got home.  That resulted in enough progress have something to post for today.

Evening Star
Pattern from Calico Carriage
Designed by Debbie Maddy

All the HSTs for the Evening Star quilt are done.  Hopefully this evening I can start assembling the top. 

Progress was also made on Scrappy Stars. 

Pattern is Folk Art Christmas Stars
by Robyn Pandolph

 Two more stars were added to the design wall.  I do really need to check on how many stars are required for the finished quilt. These little stars are so easy to make, it wouldn't be hard to just keep on making them. 

There has been progress on The Sofa Quilt, it's just not up on the design wall.  Hopefully by the time Evening Star is pieced, there will be enough "B" blocks done that it will be time to put the Sofa Quilt back up on the wall. 

That's it for me this week.  I have high hopes for lots of progress next weekend as we have no volleyball games or other plans (that I know of anyway).  Check out all the other design walls posted at Judy's Patchwork Times

Glad you had a good weekend; it's a shame they have to come to an end, isn't it?

In the thumbnail (on Judy's blog) the HSTs shimmer on your design wall.

It looks to me like you got a lot done considering you were gone for 4 days. And so glad you had such a good time. We all need a break now and then.

Love those scrappy stars. Sounds like another fun memory to tuck away ready for instant reminiscing when you need a pick up--say about 10 o'clock on a Monday morning. :)

Can't wait to see all those HSTs come together in a top!

Bonnie said...

Yummy stuff on your wall. Thanks for the inspiration.

Loving seeing the progress on the scrappy stars. And the HST's are looking great too!

it's always hard to get back to real life after a long weekend. Sorry you didn't get as much done as you would have liked, but I'm sure it was time well spent. Love hsts and the stars ...
