Design Wall Monday

On the design wall today...  Wonky little stars!  I am making another pillow top and was inspired by this picture over at Fresh Lemons.  I didn't have a tutorial so I cut up 2.5 " blocks and went for it.  I found the most complicated part of the whole thing was building the layout.  This is one of those times where you need to actually build the thing in order to get it all in the right places.  So it is all laid out and I just need to sew it together. Fun or what?

And other than that... I have also been playing with the 250 plus stitches on my new sewing machine.  This is just so much fun.  Even little maple leaves for us Canadians!!!!

And don't forget that on December 12, it's the big gigantic Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  They are doing a giant linky party for those that wish to have a giveaway.  Don't forget to check out the amazing giveaways that day.  I am going to join in the fun with another giveaway.  Mark your calendars!

I am going to link up with Judy's Design Wall Monday today too.  Some very clever people are making some really wonderful things!


  1. I did something similar when I got my new sewing machine. Try it with variegated thread. Makes it even more fun and interesting!

  2. Love those wonky little stars - you don't even need me to comment on your new machine - lucky girl!
