Design Wall and Challenges

On September 1st, Kat released the new block for the Covered in Love blocks. These blocks are called Fiddlesticks! The tutorial is found at Zippy Quilts. Kat made a few adjustments to the tutorial so that the blocks would be cut to 12.5" The background fabrics are to be solid or textured solids. I used some cottons from my stash and the sticks are from my scraps. 
On September 3rd, Cheryl released the next step in the Morewood Mystery Quilt. 90 HST ~ 60 3" size and 30 5 1/2" size. 
Here are my HST!
Cheryl also did a Facebook video that was a very helpful tip in trimming the HST without stretching. Why have I not heard of this technique before? 
The corners are perfect! 
I also started the quilt challenge from the National Quilters Circle called Starlight Mountains. Week 1 instructions were released on Monday. 
6 stars! 
This is what is on my design wall!

  1. Wow, Dawn, you have irons in all the fires! But I suppose there is plenty of time to do each weekly or monthly block(s). I am intrigued with the sticks blocks. And I wonder what you will do with all the half square triangles. I’ll be watching!

  2. Hi Dawn! Oh, thanks for the reminder about CiL. I will head over there next. Your blocks look pretty as do your stars. I'll see if I can check out Cheryl's video - that sounds like a handy tip to learn. Take care. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Love your Fiddlesticks! Kat's block drives are always lots of fun. Looks like you've got several interesting projects to choose from :)
