Designing Monday

Just a quick post and I'm off.  I have made a little progress on my black and batik quilt.  I have been sewing the blocks together and I'm more than halfway there, so should have those done this week.

I started new projects for Christmas.  The first is a paper pieced star that will be used at church to decorate for the first Advent Service.  We hold a Wednesday night service just for women followed by a tea.  I have also been asked to host a table for the tea which means bringing my dishes from home and providing table decorations.  I don;t have any Christmas dishes so am going to use my good china which is blue and white and come up with a neat silver and blue table centerpiece with a star theme.  Shouldn't be too hard, right?  Right?  RIGHT?  Can you tell this is not my forte?

Also am making a 12" square from the 100 Blocks magazine that I love.  Fun hand work.

Be sure to check out some great designs at Judy's  blog.


  1. I'm always happy when I see black with batiks--just makes the colors glow!
    That star looks lovely. Oh, I hope I don't get hit with anymore holiday projects!! : )

  2. sparkly star quilt! I made the same Christmas block from the magazine. it is really quick.

  3. Your stars are just dancing across that black background. I think a blue and silver table runner or table mat would be pretty.
