Monday Design Wall - October 29th

The weekend was way shorter than normal. Working on Saturday really put a crimp in a number of things.  Thankfully, working on Saturday isn't something I have to do often.  I did take most of Sunday off, just spent some time on a bit of housework in the morning.  Quite a bit of sewing happened Sunday afternoon. 

Those half square triangles that were on the design wall last week are now being sewn together in sections. 

Evening Star
Pattern from Calico Carriage
Designed by Debbie Maddy

Section one is complete, section 2 is almost done.  This project goes together pretty fast.  If I get time in the sewing room this week, it could be pretty close to being a completed top by the end of next weekend.

Progress was also made on this month's UFO project.

 Scrappy Stars
Pattern is Folk Art Christmas Stars
by Robyn Pandolph

The pattern calls for 35 of these little stars. Not quite half way there yet. 

Remember the Sofa Quilt?  It's been my leaders and enders project for the last couple of months.  I'm finally getting enough pieces done to start assembling the "B" blocks.

The Sofa Quilt
Pattern is Nicole's Sofa Quilt by Judy Laquidara

Hopefully by the time the Evening Star is together, all the "B" blocks will be done and then the Sofa Quilt can take center stage on the design wall. 

That's it for my design wall this week.  Now click on over to Patchwork Times to see what's decorating other sewing rooms.
