Design Wall Monday October 20, 2014

I am almost done with the Mai Tai Sunrise blocks.  Almost.  I have extras of framed nine patches, but it looks like I still need 5 more star blocks.  First I'd better get these picked up off the floor before the dog scrambles them though.  Each block is 7.5 inches, so this should be a nice twin sized quilt when it is done.  This is a Bonnie Hunter Pattern from Quiltmaker magazine.  Though, I also saw the star block in a Nickel Quilts book as well.  I didn't use nickel squares, I used 2 inch strips and easy and companion angle rulers.  These blocks have been Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for about a year and a half I think, so it will feel great to get them finished off and sewn together.  Hopefully before the new mystery starts after Thanksgiving.
 Most of my sewing time this weekend was spent painting the girls bathroom, so not much was accomplished on the quilting front.
 The bathroom is now a cool and creamy shade of teal that reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
This is the fabric that they have chosen for curtains and shower curtains.  So no quilts on the horizon quite yet, but the sewing machine will get some action in any case.  I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times, so feel free to head over and see what else is on design walls this week.

Lovely rainbows in those quilt blocks! Well done. I love the bathroom, and the colours the girls have chosen for their accessories. Wouldn't mind some of that lovely fabric on the left for my stash. LOL

Yes, the star block is in Nickel Quilts. It's one of my favorite blocks. Love the color progression of yours.

What a fun project for your girls. How lucky they are to have a mom who can make them fun, pretty curtains instead of buying plain ones at the store!
