Design Wall Monday -- 2/13/2011

I've done a lot of cutting since last week's post trying to kit up remnants for tote bags and pot holders, so little has changed on my design wall other than the completion of my last big block for this quilt.  Several appealing catalogs have arrived in the past few weeks and I'm really struggling to stick to my goal of reducing my scrap stash and backlog of projects before investing in anything other than what's needed to finish WIPs.  I did order fabric to sash and border the quilt pictured above, so I'm not counting that!

Stop by Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are up to.

Your piecing is very beautiful!

Oh quick...throw away the catalogs..just teasing. I find if I wait a week before I actually order, I order less.

your blocks are great...and I agree w/ Jo. I've browse thoroughly through the catalogs and earmark the pages with "must have's" then wait a week or so, it's amazing how much less I must have! Good luck.
Doesn't it feel great to get fabric organized and ready for future projects-it's like spring cleaning without the dreariness.

Pretty, pretty and bright!

Beautiful blocks, you'll have some great totes and pot-holders, it is hard to resist buying new fabrics isn't it??

Love these blocks. Great idea to have small projects in kits ready to sew. I look at the catalogs, tear out the projects I want to do and pin them to the bulletin boards where I can see them and have yet to order any of them!!

I love the blocks! I miss Hill Country and the blue bonnets. We lived in the area for a couple of years.

These blocks are real mood lifters! So happy and bright.

So bright. And it is hard to not either start something else or to buy fabric to finish what you have going. Good luck.
