Color Party on the Wall!

Is it Monday again already? How did that happen?! The weeks just seem to be going by faster and faster lately. I did manage to get a little bit done last week. There are two projects going on the design wall currently.

The off center lonestar is based on this one by Better off Thread.  I pulled the fabrics based on colors from an argyle fabric, but didn't actually find anywhere to use the inspiration fabric in the quilt! Funny how that happens sometime. Anyway, I LOVE the colors of that star. So different and so bold.  I am planning to use a brown solid for the rest of the top and place the star as it is on my design wall, toward the bottom left.  The quilting is going to be so much fun to do on this one.

The project with all the HSTs is making use of my Architextures charm pack.  Last night I started sewing up the rest of the HSTs; what is on the wall is about 1/3 of what I need.  The rest of the HSTs are much more blue and purple heavy, so hopefully the final quilt will end up being blue, purple, and cream with pops of color.

Here we go on another crazy week.  Hope you find some time it sew!  I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times!


  1. I love the offset lone star. That quilt will be gorgeous!

  2. I really love that offset star! That little frame of blue will look awesome against the brown.
