A design wall from a messy stitcher

Well back on Thursday I said I was going to finish putting the borders on my Charming Stars quilt and that I wanted to start the cover quilt from Quilt magazine. Only half of that statement occurred - ahem.... here is the start of a new quilt called Dazzling Scraps (their title not mine - LOL!)



I may call it Dazzling Debbie! This is my second quilt this year with my cherished Debbie Mumm scraps. I stumbled upon a site- Mummquilters.com - that was new to me that carries lots of new DM and I was able to score more background fabrics cause you can never have too many different background fabrics - IMHO! This place has fantastic service. I ordered on Saturday and had my fabric on Monday- I don't know how she did it.

I love going through my stash and cutting squares out of fabrics that make me smile. Like this fat turkey...



or this cat who reminds me of my Big Dude... if he was skinny Big Dude...



However I project like this means I will make a humongous mess of which this is only a small corner...



Perhaps I should hide my face in shame like Big Dude -- LOL -- or just go sew a few more blocks together! Yeah -- that's a plan!




Happy stitching-
carol fun
