Design Wall Monday

Although late for DWM,
here are 2 projects I am working on:
First up X & + quilt (Zen Chic pattern)

made with a 'Hoopla" - 1 block
temporary lay-out 
 I am using Kona charcoal grey as background;
so far only the corner units are sewn
and still a bunch is missing.
Had a power outage on Sunday 
that stopped all activity...

And when I found my box with 1 1/2 inch strips,
I just had to try 2 spool blocks,

Love how quick they come together
and will likely make some more.
Size: just 3 1/2 inch square.
Be aware:
they are addictive!

If you haven't seen my paper piecing journal cover,

Linking up to Judy's DWM.
Happy sewing,


  1. Love the color choices against the charcoal gray. Cute cute!!!

  2. I really like Zen Chic (German gal) and her Comma fabric. Your new quilt will be fantastic with the gray. Aren't you organized with your strips in a box? LOL Mine are in a box too but with 1M more bits and pieces!!

  3. Love the bright colors in your quilt.

  4. I love your projects and the fun colors!


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
