Design Wall Monday #5

Today is the last design wall post for January. On my 5 January design wall blog posts, I showed 6 different projects, and none of them are nearing completion. Let's just say I am generating UFO's for next year's UFO list.
I just love what is on my design wall this week!
On the right there are rows of black and white 4 patches for our group quilt. It must get to the quilters asap to be ready in time for this year's quilt auction in May, so I have to stop procrastinating those borders!
On the top left is my 12" block for Jo's Quilt Square Quilt Along. I am using up the Sweetwater scraps from my Quiltmaker mystery that I finished in December (click here to see that quilt). 
I just love my first block! There will be 12 blocks made over the year, a new one posted each month, and at the end of the year I plan to make my blocks into a sampler quilt.
To see other blocks, hop over to Jo's blog where she's hosting a linky party.
On the bottom left of my design wall is another 12" block from my 100 blocks magazine (vol. #4). This block is called "Times Nine" by Jo Morton. It was so fun to sew! I love how each block looks different depending on the placement of the light, medium and dark fabrics. Most of the fabrics are civil war reproductions. I don't know what I will do with this block and just made it for fun. For now, I am just admiring it on my design wall!
To see other design walls, hop over to Judy's blog.

Love the projects in process! The log cabin is lovely and great idea to make a sampler quilt at the end of the year with it. I just love that last block... is it really 12 inches finished? Love the civil war repo's - very striking.

I love the colour combination in the log cabin block. I'll have to put that into my ideas bin. I have lots of stuff in those colours. Hmmmmmmmm.......

OH No! I see another project in my future. Can't get enough of my Civil War Fabrics. Only a few more months until the next 100 Blocks issue comes out. I'll need to clear the walls off for that. I have too many projects marinating on there. Glad you do too! I'm in great company.

All your project are great. I especially like the quilt along block. Those diagonal squares really set the block off!

All your projects look wonderful! I have recently made a small quilt using the Times Nine blocks, they are so versatile, and as you say look quite different depending of the fabric placement!!! The log cabin is a beauty too!!!
