Design Wall Monday


My sewing time has been spent working on blocks for American Hero Quilts.   At the next retreat (that starts Thursday-I can't wait!!!), several of us are working on American Hero Quilts.

In my DWM post last week, I said I was going to use the Awesome pattern for my quilt but after figuring, drawing and thinking, I've changed my mind. I  decided to do Judy L's  Sweet Treats Quilt Along, but I now have to do it my way.  A girl can change her mind, right???  Since my blocks are at 6 1/2", I have to do some math to get on the right path with her.  That's ok, I can do math--really, I can do EQ7.  


This star block is my version of Bonnie Hunter's Boxy Stars.  As a group, we will make sections and then create the stars.  I am very excited about this project.  I made one 2 years ago -- I can't believe it has been that long.  I loved the way it turned out.

Check out the Design Wall Monday posts that are linking up at Patchwork Times today.  I love Mondays in Blogland!

I think the sweet treats pattern is a great one for your Hero quilt. I am a big fan of the boxy stars. It works up nicely and your colors are great. Have fun at retreat!!

I've seen a couple of sweet treats started already. Looks like a fun pattern! Beautiful stars! Great contrast.

i like how you used gold for the inner square of sweet treats! what color are your outer frames going to be? It will be a great American Hero quilt and OQV, too! Love the blues in your boxy stars. :)
