Design Wall Monday 4-2-12

Monday all over again!

Today’s project is from a pattern called Twisting With The Stars from Little Louise Designs.

I know this picture doesn’t show much.  I have one block with all the components but not sewn completely yet… but I had to see the star before I continued with getting the other blocks going.

Twisted Stars 02

This was one of the patterns I picked up at the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show a couple weeks ago.  It’s designed to use Layer Cakes (10” precuts) or Jelly Rolls (2 1/2” strips).  The pattern showcases some beautiful bright fabrics… but since I had no precuts I just grabbed a bunch of my Black & White FQ’s and cut what I needed.

A few of these B&W’s go way back… long before I was really careful about the quality of fabric I bought.  With a strong light I wonder if one couldn’t see right through some of these.  I probably should try and cull my collection – but I’m a sucker for the print design and the last time I tried to weed out FQ’s I only came up with one… LOL

That's cute. I like the rail fence blocks with the occasional star.

Nice blocks. Black and white is always a classic.
