Monday Design Wall - Sunny Side Up




I made great progress this past week on Judy's Sunny Side Up quilt along. Sewing the star blocks was really fun, and I was very happy when I put them on the design wall with the alternate chain blocks.

I am ready for step #9 - sewing the blocks into rows.





Here are some of the blocks all ready to sew together. These Dritz row marking pins are great for keeping the blocks in order while you move them from the design wall to the sewing machine.


Once I pin all the blocks into rows, my design wall will be empty and ready for other blocks to fill it up. I have been trimming my HST blocks for the mystery quilt that I would like to do more sewing on this week, and hope they make it to the design wall soon.

Hi Kathy...Love the quilt on the design wall. It will be lovely when completed!!
Thank-you for visiting...I have so many things going on...I am surprised I am caught up too! I probably won't get to quilting it until the fall.

Take care,

Love the combination of the two blocks together! So cute!

Karen said...

I like the colors and the way the light squares form a diagonal design between the stars. Seems more like Sunday today rather than Monday.

Stars, chains, and KT fabrics--you can't miss. I love it, Kathy!

Love your Sunny Side Up! It's really pretty. I envy those who enjoy sewing quilts like this at the machine! Lately it's all about hand stitching for me. Much more relaxing for this girl. Thanks so much for sharing it! It's a beautiful design and color choices!
