Design Wall Monday #40

My quilting time has been completely taken over with ***asterisks***
It is totally out of control! Last week I made a mini with 9 tiny asterisk blocks -click here to see it. Over the weekend, in spite of having my first cold/bronchitis of the winter season, I finished making 30 larger (4" - 5" blocks) using the tutorial on the Selvage Blog. These blocks are for the border of my letter quilt along project that I showed on last week's design wall. I am out of this fabric now, so that is as many blocks as there will be and now I have to figure out how to make them into a border.

    Hope you are feeling better.....

  4. Ran out of fabric, aww, shucks. Hate it when that happens! But maybe it needed to happen or you would have ended up with an asterisk quilt with the alphabet as a border. : )
