A fairly full design wall for Monday

Okay, back on Friday I bemoaned my lack of math skills and cheered myself up with new fabric (and a candy bar) from Joanns. I fretted over it for a while and then I knuckled down on Saturday evening and cut out the additional squares and triangles I needed.



This is my Dazzling Debbies - taken from Dec/Jan 2012 issue of Quilt magazine. I'm enjoying using lots and lots of different fabrics from my Debbie Mumm stash.



Along with the tone on tone fabrics there are lots of novelties which I find impossible to resist.


So I thought that I had my math issues under control but yesterday I realized -again - the error of my ways! I still can't keep track of how many squares I need. I'm making the large half square triangle blocks that comprise the border and I am still 40 triangles short -- (insert banging head on design wall). I really should have paid closer attention in kindergarten.

Now I'm off to participate in the Monday driving rodeo - today I have a quilt guild meeting to throw into the event so it is going to be a busy busy day!

Happy stitching-
carol fun

  2. "Banging head on design wall" Did you make the colors bleed?

  4. Your quilt pieces are looking good! Because of you I bought that magazine today. I see one of these in my future too! :0)

  5. Great star pattern, love the colors you chose. I guess if counting is a problem you could just keep making blocks until you run out of fabric. What's the worst that could happen?

  7. I love this scrappy quilt. I may have to make myself (or someone else) one. It combines three things I love: scraps, triangles and stars.

  9. Love all the scrappy goodness and don't see any forehead imprint from banging your head :) Enjoy the rodeo! I almost never buy novelties but sometimes they do call pretty loudly (they are kinda bossy, don't you think?)
