Design Wall Monday – Week #7

My Design Wall is pretty full this week!

I am working on my Scrappy Bearpaws for the 2012 UFO Challenge, and making great headway.  The blocks go together quickly and I just love making them.  As you can see, they are truly scrappy, with lots and lots of different fabrics! 

They will be assembled with neutral sashing and red cornerstones, then a neutral inner border, a red/neutral sawtooth middle border and then another neutral outer border.  I have been making the sawtooth HST’s as leaders and enders, and they are piling up quickly (thank goodness!). 

A friend recently gave me a bag of scraps from her last project and guess what I found inside ….

Yep!  A pile of these just-the-right-size triangles for the HST’s!  I usually use the Easy Angle ruler to make HST’s anyway, so I got busy and cut lots of red triangles to put with the scrap neutrals.  

Before I knew it, Presto! Shazam!!!  I’ve got lots of cute perfect HST’s!!!  Love it when a friend shares her scraps =^..^=  Of course, there will be lots of HST's with other neutrals too, but I just love these with the pretty red flowers.

I’m also getting ready to work on my green pineapples for the Rainbow Challenge – here is my bucket of crumbs with a lot of green scraps added in.  Yum!!!!  These will be so sweet when I’ve got them done.  They will look like Christmas when I put them on the Display Wall beside the red ones I made last month :*D

And just because I like you all, here’s a little Show-n-Tell of my recent finishes…..

Quilts in Progress – just love this little wall-hanging!!!  You saw it on my Design Wall picture above, but I completed it Saturday night, so Hooray!  A finish!!!!

And this is my Iris Tango, with its binding all finished up and now hanging on my quilt rack in the front dining room.  Doesn’t it look all sophisticated hanging there?  I’m so happy to have a new quilt to display!

So what have you been up to in your sewing rooms?  Share with us at Patchwork Times!

Hugs & Blessings!
