What's on my design wall?

I've not done much sewing lately. Which is why I haven't participated in Design Wall Mondays. School starting has put a damper on my personal work. Most of my machine time has been at the longarm, quilting for customers, but I have been plugging away at units for Starstruck.

My friend requested a quilt in neutrals with red accents. I'm not sure if she was thinking about neutrals getting as dark as the deep coffee browns, but I think it's turning out nicely.

I haven't made as much progress on Pick and Choose. I'm working on the four patch units that go in the corners.

I did finally get my table runner top assembled. Not quilted, but assembled. I didn't make my goal for the Charming Girls July contest though.

Do you think I put in enough flying geese units? Since I'm demonstrating how to make the geese units for the October quilt show, I wanted lots of the units in this project. Now, I'll start collecting pictures of blocks that use the units to have as part of a display.

Off to school for me.


  1. I like the colors in your Starstruck. I've been wanting to make this pattern but haven't decided on a color scheme. Red for sure but I don't know yet what else.

  2. I am doing a star struck quilt too - well, I should say, I am making blks for it...... It has become my "what to work on when away from home" project!! And it's out of scraps basically. I did start with a theme, kinda, but it went to the way side when I realized I didn't have enough green.... I am enjoy it though. It's utility, so I think it's going to be just fine. And I am enjoying making it.
    I like your projects - enjoy the rest of the summer and make sure you have fun!!

  3. Love, love, love it. Exactly the colours I would use too. All warm, and homey somehow. Now if your friend doesn't like it, I'll pay the postage for it's trip to me in the UK (gg)
    Hope school's going OK? Must be very hard work teaching littlies.

  4. I stumbled onto your blog and love your header. Also the tablerunner is nice - great colors
