I love the routine of posting what is on my design wall every Monday. Thanks to Judy at Patchwork Times for facilitating this weekly ritual. It helps to keep me focused, reminds me of my progress, and it is fun to look back at all the projects that have lived on my design wall over the years.
Today I am working on the Temecula Summer Stars Quilt Along. The blocks are 4" finished and were the perfect stress-free summer project.
I had fun auditioning layouts for this little quilt.
I auditioned the leftover backing from my UFO finish in July for a border fabric, and although I liked the fabric with these blocks, I wasn't loving the layout. Which is strange, because I liked the layout idea enough to use it for my dotty stars quilt (which I have decided to call "Dotty for Kaffe"!)
But these blocks demanded to be on pointe, so I gave in and found that I had enough fabric for the setting triangles, the backing and the binding. I made an extra block to piece into the backing for the label.
The quilt and I are now in negotiations to decide whether it will be hand quilted or machine quilted.
Grab a cup of tea and hop over to Patchwork Times to visit the other design wall postings today.
