On my design wall

Are you shocked that I have something different to show two weeks in a row?

I’m just throwing these blocks up as I make them so placement will be adjusted as I get more blocks made — those three darker stars won’t stay lined up like that.

    I really love this! Both the circular effect & the colors. Is this a pattern you have on your site?

    I love this. I opened up the page and thought “wow”. Very cool circle effects-I love your string quilts and this just looks so different! I too love snow and I will admit snow days are fun (for the first day or so). I live in Kansas City and we are expecting a blizzard with 10-17inches of snow in the next couple of days! I am getting my supplies out and set up so I can start early on quilting my great-nephew’s quilt. Our spring break is going to be gone after this week of snow days so I am going to make sure that I use these days just like I would for spring break and I am going to quilt! Enjoy your snow!

    I love this!!!!!!!!!!! I have done a very similar layout that gives the circular effect with that star, but the churn dash block in it adds a nice bit of extra interest. And the colors are fab!

    I’m loving this! It really makes me want to hurry and get these other quilts quilted so that I can get back to working on mine!

    Mary-
    This is absolutely beautiful! I like the red where it is. Oh how I want to make this pattern! Thanks so much for making your patterns available to us. I also wanted to congratulate you on accomplishing your goal for January! Way to go! Thanks for sharing your progress.

    Very pretty, a Tennessee Waltz quilt but with churn dash instead of snowball blocks. I like the variation, the circular optical illusion is great and your colour choices are inspired!

    It’s always amazing what secondary design effects you get in a two block quilt — Love this one! I like the bold stars in a row like that, can’t wait to see the finished top!

    You are making me want to work on mine! I have 4 quilts to finish before Feb 9th….3 are in the binding stage. One of those needs to be done TONIGHT as its a birthday quilt. My middle one is 26 today..oh my!

    I love it!!! I like the use of blue and then the bright stars! And, I’m sick and tired of the snow! UGH…ENOUGH! ;-D

    I have nothing to add that everyone else hasn’t already said, but just couldn’t not say how gorgeous this is! I love the colors (that blue and red together are just great) and I love the circle illusion. Terrific!
