Design Wall Monday

Hello Design Wall Monday.......how did you sneak up on me like this?  I have nothing on my design wall.  I am designing.  Well not really designing, I am getting ready to cut 2 projects into kits. 

First I have the Carpenter's Star that will be used when Judy L does the feather lessons.  Oh how I want to make great feathers!  My fabrics are all in 1 yard pieces so I am going to make a scrappy border using the  fabrics on the left or buy a piece that will go with what I have because I think those pinks are too pale for a border.

At our retreat, we are going to be working on some American Hero quilts and this is going to be mine.  I need to cut some red 2 1/2" strips.  I might use the gold for the centers of the squares--I'm not sure yet.  This pattern is Awesome from Moda Bake Shop and is for a lap sized quilt.  I will get the correct measurements for the AH quilts and make mine according to their requirements.  

The sun is going to be out again today-high 70s-so that means not a lot of sewing or cutting time.  You know the old saying about making hay while the sun shines.........I have yard work/hay to take care of.  

Visit Judy L and see her Carpenter's Star and then visit other great quilters around Blogland.

Judy, I think your pinks will work for the border. Maybe one more brighter pink or change one of the paler pinks for it. I like sewing with reds and your grouping looks great. Enjoy your retreat. Sandi

Looks like lots of fun is going on in your sewing room there! The American Hero pattern looks like fun!

Love scrappy borders...I think your Carpenter's Star with feathers will be great. The "Awesome," pattern looks like a good one too.

I really enjoy seeing everyone's fabrics, where do you shop to find such great things? I really like the Awsome pattern and haven't seen it before, I agree gold centers will be perfect.
