Design Wall Monday

I had a very productive weekend. I spent the majority of the weekend working on the Tiger Lily quilt. It is now a flimsy. More about that later. 

Today is Design Wall Monday over at Judy's. Be sure to drop by and leave comments. We all love to read comments. 

I'm not sure if you remember this project. 

It is the Fat Quarter Star BOM provided by Moose on the Porch. If you recall, I picked out my fabrics and then decided I didn't want to have to make the decision of which fabrics to use for each block. So I put them in bags (by color) and pulled out the number of fabrics I needed for each block.

This worked until I got to the outside borders. The blocks were all 12 1/2 inch blocks. The final instructions were to add a 1 1/2 border of the background fabric and a 1 1/2 inch colored border around each block. When I got to that step, I just cut strips from the fabrics I had enough of and then matched that fabric to the blocks.

All blocks are made now, but I still have to sew the outside border on some of the blocks. I want the quilt to be larger, so I think I'll add 3 or 4 borders. But tonight, it is back to the Tiger Lily Quilt.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Beautiful! Love the colors in those blocks. :)

  2. I like the way the stars float. More interesting to the eye than set edge-to-edge.
