Sooooo close on a Design Wall Monday

I am soooooo close to being finished with my fall themed Scrap Jar Stars.


One more star, one more row, then an additional round where I'll complete the 9 patches on the outside and the borders. I really really really wanted to have this done in time to take to the guild meeting tonight, but I don't see it happening. However, last evening around 11:30 pm I did remember that I could possibly drop this off to my long arm quilter later in the wee if she is going to her mini-group meeting. I'll have to call her today and ask.

I am loving these blocks and I am very happy with that Moda Grunge fabric in the background.


It has the appearance of sanded paint and there are bright patches and dull patches and patches with a touch of peachy pink. I know I'd like to have more of this in my stash.

I got a lot accomplished on this quilt yesterday afternoon as I listened to my beloved Cincinnati Reds play the Pittsburgh Pirates. Its a good thing the quilt is pretty because the game was ugly. The Reds starting pitcher goes by the nickname "Homer" Bailey. Giving up a homer is not what you want to do if you are a pitcher. I contend he'd be a better pitcher if his nickname was "Ground Ball Out" Bailey. Just saying.

Well its a busy Monday.... driving around for my younger son and then guild meeting tonight. It should be a good one. We are having a mini shop hop and I getting two quilts back from my long arm quilter. Yep, its going to be a good day.

Happy stitching-

    Now a "Bailey" is still a "Bailey" even if he goes by another name! :)
