Design Wall Monday

I've been working on a couple of UFOs (same pattern, just two completely sets of fabrics so I'll have two differently looking quilts). I'm finishing up the Rolling Star blocks for each of the quilts and that is what's on my design wall/sewing table today.



As you can probably tell from the photo, one of the quilts will be scrappy (the top block) and one will be repeating fabrics. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference. The last one of these quilts I made was a very controlled scrappy because I was still new to "stash quilting" and I was too afraid to let loose and go for it. This scrappy one will be somewhat controlled, but near as mush as the other one. Of course I don't have a picture of the first one I made because that had been taken with the camera that reformated the XD card. I lost 10-12 pictures of quilts when that happened, so now I try to be really good about making copies as soon as I can after taking the pictures. I also try to remember to print out the pictures so I have a hard copy.

Check out what other quilters are working on today by going to Judy L.'s Patchwork Times blog.

I'm interested in how these work out. I like the more scrappy version. The other is too "safe" for my tastes.

I like both versions. I try to remember to save my pictures to a thumb drive but I let it go too long between backups...I would be so sad to lose pictures

I love the black, gold and teal.

I like both versions!

And I always immediatly download to the computer after I take pics. My friend just accidentally deleted all their photos from a trip to Ireland by pressing the wrong button! I would die!

Very nice ! I like both but I do like to make super scrappy quilts

That is a really nice layout of those basic blocks. Takes the basic and makes it look quite complex.

I can't wait to see how the quilts are different with the change you made from one to the other. It's a fabulous design...I love mine!
