Design Wall Monday

It's Monday. YEAH!!! I love Design Wall Monday. I get so inspired when I see the wonderful works that people post. Sometimes, the quilt is such an intricate and detailed beauty that I wonder if I would ever be talented enough to do that. Other times, I'm simply in awe of the fabric choices that are made when making more traditional or "easy" blocks. I often think, "I would never have thought about putting those colors or fabrics together?" I often have "ah ha" moments when I see a quilt layout that includes blocks that I have made, but they are put together in a unique manner. Simply put, Design Wall Monday is wonderful. Thank you all for sharing your projects and talents!

Now, here's what's on my wall.
I made this block for a woman who is a member of an on-line group to which I belong. She was gracious enough to give me the pattern, as long as I made a block for her to use in a charity quilt she will be donating. I haven't made my blocks yet, but here's the one for her. She gave me a couple of fabric choices for her block, and one of them was patriotic, so here you go. I really like how this turned out and now have to decide what fabrics I'll use for mine.

Before I can make my star quilt though, I have to get this pile of 14 Honor Flight quilts quilted and bound. They're only 36" x 48" so it won't take long. I just need to sit down and do it. Maybe I'll start when I get home from class tonight. (We're NOT going to discuss the other 11 or so quilts that are ready also. Their time will come.)
What's on your design wall today? Go to Judy L.'s Patchwork Times to check out what other quilters have on their walls. Share your project also. I really do need one more project to inspire me and keep me from getting a good night's sleep!  :-)
