Monday Design Wall - December 31st

Happy New Year's Eve!  Hard to believe it's already the last day in 2012.  We don't have any plans for this evening.  We'll stay home, maybe watch a movie together, watch the ball drop and then go to bed. Not an exciting evening, but it works for us.  I'll probably get to stitch a bit as well. 

I've been on vacation since before Christmas, but holiday preparations kept me busy for about 3 days, then we spent about 5 days visiting family over the holidays.  Since last Friday, I've been able to sew for a bit each afternoon and have made a lot of progress on several projects.  I thought Evening Star was done, but then realized it still needed the borders added. 

Pattern from Calico Carriage
Designed by Debbie Maddy

More stars have been added to December UFO, Scrappy Stars.

Pattern is Folk Art Christmas Stars
by Robyn Pandolph
This is the oldest UFO on my list, dating from 2003.  This project will at the top of my "to do" list for 2013.

The Sofa Quilt has been a leaders and enders project for months now.  I finally got enough pieces made to complete a few more "block 2s". 

Pattern is Nicole's Sofa Quilt by Judy Laquidara
(available here)
 I like how this one is going together.  I'll continue to work on the blocks as a leaders and enders project, so progress will be slow, but at least there will be progress. 

That's it for my design wall this week.  It's been nice being off work.  The house is cleaner and my design walls are fuller.  To check out what else is showing up on design walls, click over to Patchwork Times.

I love all your projects especially the first one, the lone star variation. I haven't seen one in awhile.
Great job!!

Looks like you've had a productive time off work! Your blocks are all looking good. Happy New Year!

Love the projects! Is there another border for Evening Star? And the sofa quilt looks great with the added blocks! I love the patterns created by the two blocks together.

Beautiful work, Kate. That last quilt really pops with color.

This is why I love quilting blogs ... all three of your projects up today are just sweet eye candy and inspiration! And you know how partial I am to that gorgeous purple Evening Star! :)

I really like the Folk Art Stars Kate. I never would have guessed thats an old lurky project either. It looks timeless.
