Design Wall Monday 1-30-12

My goodness what happened to January?

I am still in Texas - will be for several more weeks - but I've been sewing over at my sisters house this past weekend in between trips to local antique shops to poke around.

For my travels to Texas I brought along some long over due unfinished projects to work on - things that had been sitting unfinished for way too long.

This project was started many years ago (maybe 9?? years) after I participated in a year long 5" Fabric Swap at Southampton Quilts - my favorite quilt shop up in Massachusetts.  After the swap finished - I had begun this Morning Star Quilt out of the Nickel Quilts book.  I had most of the individual components made but had not put anything together to assemble a block... much less 24 blocks.  It took me a day of counting and organizing to figure out just where I was in the process... not sure why I never make notes to myself?

Morning Star

I am working on getting the blocks assembled - here are 4 blocks stuck up on the design wall right now.  I have the others ready to sew the final seam and then I’ll start putting rows together.  I’d really like to put a great big dent in this before I head back over to my folks house tomorrow morning as I don’t think I’ll get to do any sewing while I’m over there.  But I’ll be back here at my sisters the next week so there is still lots of time.

Doesn't it feel great to get a UFO done. And that one looks great!

My group was just talking about picking up UFO's and forgetting what we were doing. Yours looks great.

This reminds me of a UFO in my pile. I like the bright colors and the stars. Very nice.
