A design wall for a busy Monday

I'm trying to post this early (for me) since I have lots of running around to do today. Well as you can see my design wall doesn't look anything like it did last Monday. Fear not the Hugs & Kisses blocks are still being worked on but I needed a little change of pace.

These blocks are from a great pattern by Cluck,Cluck,Sew called Sugar Dish.

The fabrics are a totally different palette from last week and that is what I love about quilting - so many fabrics to choose from. These fabrics are by Urban Chiks and are a couple of years old. The collections were from Moda and one is called Swell and the other was called Sweet. I think they have been properly aged and are ready to be stitched up in these fun blocks. I even did one of the adorable Dresden Plate blocks that the pattern calls for.

Those little blades are only 2 1/2" tall! I stitched them down with the blanket stitch on my Janome - I love that stitch! I know that some of my fabrics don't have a lot of contrast with the Kona Snow but I'm fine with it. I'm hoping that the finished quilt will have a soft, well-loved, well worn look.

I'm off - happy stitching!
