Design Wall Monday

I wasn't planning to participate this week,  but I wasn't ready to pack up my sewing room yet.  While rummaging around, I found a zip bag with a ton of purple and light half-square triangle blocks.  They were leftovers from a quilt I made about 7 or 8 years ago.  They were all squared up and ready to use!
 The blocks are only 5 inches finished, but I managed to use up all the parts, with only 3 blocks leftover to add to my "orphan block" basket.  Now I am working on a friendship star border to make this little gem bigger.  I told DH that I was going to start packing on Wednesday, so he can load up on Thursday, ready for a Friday departure.  I am going to miss my son's company, and I am sure that he will find the house empty-feeling for a while as well.
Head to Judy's blog to see what everyone else is working on.....


  1. I also wait until the very last moment to pack my projects. Those blocks are very cute. Have fun.

  2. WOW, what a quick turnaround! Great project!

  3. Too fun. It is like an unexpected surprise to find old blocks and finish with such a beautiful quilt.

  4. Great way to use up those extra HSTs.

  5. I've got to start making too many blocks so I can "find" an almost finished quilt just waiting for me to do something with it.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
