Design Wall Monday

I have seen so many "Just One Star" blog posts out there and it was also mentioned at the quilt guild, so I finally got started on mine.
Not quite finished yet, but 2 red and 2 blue ones are all cut and partially sewn.
Hopefully they (United Notions with Minick & Simpson) will get 1000 blocks together - and make a difference!
Once those are done I am looking at some blocks for Japan - details here on Beth's blog.

And here once more are the strip sets I have sewn for a strip block exchange - I need many more, but the start is made.
There are some house blocks to be made for another project - will try to get them into my schedule as well...

And last but not least - I got several rows quilted on my UFO "Simply A Bloom". It's a new panto for me called " Asian Clouds" by Willow Leaf Studio and I am slowly getting the hang of it.

Please go and check out other design walls listed at Judy's place!


  1. Beautiful job on the stars & I really like that panto, pretty!

  2. You have been very busy!! Your stars are great, and your quilting on 'Simply a Bloom' will be stunning. Such a pretty quilt.

  3. Wow -- your stitching looks like the panto -- sometimes mine doesn't. I love Willow Leaf designs -- don't have that one but it may go on my wish list. Simply a Bloom is going to be simply gorgeous.

  4. Thanks for the link to the Japan quilt. I have wanted to help somehow. Your star blocks are great. Mine are going out in the mail today.

    Nice panto and your quilting looks great. I am curious about the strip exchange, looks very interesting.

  5. I enjoyed seeing the photo of your machine quilting set up. Looks like you'll meet your UFO goal for March!

  6. You have been busy. The star blocks are cute :)

  7. You've got a lot going on. I couldn't get the link to the One Star to open, but I can't open a lot of pdf files. I'd like to see more of your quilt frame set up too. It looks a bit like one I saw at the quilt show.

  8. Your panto quilting looks great - see that breakfast was just what you needed to get you going! Your strips are so pretty too - 16 more to do?? Thanks for the links.

  9. Good for you for doing the Just one star - they will defineatly make a difference. Love your strip blocks!


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
