On The Wall Today

This weekend I was able to get quite a bit of sewing done.  Should have been more yard work and less sewing.  But I am hoping to get the mower going this afternoon.  If I can get it to start.  Batteries!




Here is what I have done so far with my 9 patch leader/ender quilt.  I have one more row to add to it and then it will be 70" without any borders.  It will have a dark brown narrow border and then 6" blocks around that to finish it off.  That's the plan for today anyway.

 


I also finished the twenty five 12" stars that are needed for my scrappy star quilt.  The stars in the back already have the sashing around them.  This would certainly be pretty all on it's own.  Hmmm.  But I'm pretty sure that I'll get back to the ninety plus 6" stars that I still need for this.


Here is a little closer view of some of the fabrics that are in this quilt.  Be sure to click on the pictures to get an even larger view.

Check out all of the terrific design walls at Patchwork Times .  Have a great Monday.

Happy sewing,

Julie
