Design Wall Monday - 7/18/16

I had another productive weekend! I'm not referring to mowing the weeds or doing the dishes but I bet you knew that!

On Saturday I was able to finish 4 more trip around the world blocks. I never took a photo so you'll need to believe me on that. I have just 3 blocks more to go!!

On Sunday I worked at The Co-Op for a few hours. There were only 3 customers which gave me lots of concentrated time to listen to an audiobook on the iPhone and stitch.

Watch out for this owl - he was winking at Janet yesterday...

First I finished this very last rose star!!!! I did get it pressed this morning so if this evening goes well, I plan to lay them out this evening. I kept making stars until I ran out of my 12 FQs so it won't be until I lay it out that I'll figure out how big it is...

Banana fabric was a last minute find in the ADK. Fun!!

Once I finished the star, I stitched up this banana "cog"....


...and then moved to a blue "sparkle" which was finished this morning. OK, I lied. I have one last seam in this to finish and then I can add the green "leaves" at opposite sides of the rosette.

I was going to count all the rosettes as I made them but needing 77 blue and 77 yellow, I am sure it's going to take quite some time to make that many. I'll count them at the end of the year, maybe bagging 10 or 20 at a time or some such idea. In the meantime I'll just enjoy playing with my fabrics.

your playing produces such lovely blocks I have only attempted the hexagon shape these are so much more interesting. Hopefully we will see the rose stars all laid out soon

I think that owl is just an unabashed flirt!
The banana fabric is a very fun effect, but I love the look of the blue "sparkle". To me it has depth and mystery.
