On the Design Wall...

Yesterday was our Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild Sew in and meeting.  It is just so much fun to sit around a sew with like minded quilty people.  I took my wee Featherweight, Daisy Marie, out for her first sew in.  She ran like a fine tuned clock and I cranked out a paper pieced block and a whole bunch of wonky star blocks.  A couple of the other quilty people had their Featherweights too.  We could start a club.  A spin off to the guild.  It was fun to compare and check what is going on with their little machines.  I ordered some new feet for the machine bed today and a spare belt just because Husband thinks it is a good idea to have a spare belt.  I agree.

Anyway.  Back to the design wall.  I started a gift quilt.  And I am using up all of those leftover shabby chic pink-ish florals in wonky stars.  A bunch of different things including some Lecien Antique Rose and all sorts other things.  The Antique Rose is actually quite pretty.  I made a baby quilt like this last summer but I still have a bunch of these fabrics so it seemed the perfect use.  I know that the person this is destined for will LOVE it.  I think I will need about 30 blocks but they go quickly.

And that is what is on my design wall... what about your's?  Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday!


  1. Isn't it pretty. I looked at the one you made last year. All my quilts used to be of the romantic variety. Isn't it funny how we have changed as quilters?! This will be a treasured heirloom for sure. Timeless

  2. Lovely, I am loving star blocks at the moment, they are so much fun to make and suit a boy or a girl!

  3. Such sweet blocks. Way too cute.
