design wall Monday......

First, I'll share what I started working on yesterday:
These are some blocks that are going to made into a baby quilt.  I think they are just so adorable!  Although, I do think that I am going to take the centers off and make them a tad smaller looking at them today.....  I think they overpower the flowers just a bit too much.

I'm sure most of you have heard of the ''Just One Star'' project that Moda is doing.  Well, a month or so ago, I sent in my star:
It killed me not to square it up, but they said not to since they'd be squaring them all up anyhow.

Anyway, when I went to the mailbox on Friday, I had an envelope from Moda in there.  I was shocked and surprised and I tore into that baby!  This is what I found:

What a wonderful surprise!  I have not seen these mini charm packs of 2.5'' squares, OH SO CUTE!  I think I am going to make a table runner from mine possibly.  I haven't seen this line of fabric yet either, and I really like it!  Very cute prints!  Oh, an idea just popped into my head, I think I know what I'm gonna make.......


  1. What a great little surprise from Moda!! Sounds like the cat is going to a good home and will be enjoyed by many if taken to shows :)

  2. Pretty little flower blocks and what a nice thank you from Moda. We do get attached to these mechanical projects don't we? My brother has a collection of vintage cars in various states of repair that are precious to him. I hope you find a great piece of property -- take care!

  3. I love the flower blocks. Is that your own design?

  4. I know the tug when something you have worked on and cherish has to go. I even feel that when I gift a quilt: part of me is pulling it back even as I hand it over. But you two will really enjoy your recreational property, I know.
