What's on the Wall?

The design wall, that is!

The pattern is from Atkinson Designs, and it's called "Lucky Stars". I've got the first four block centres pieced, and they need to be trimmed down to 9.5". I'm going to go shopping tomorrow, so I've added a 9.5" square-up ruler to my shopping list, instead of struggling with a bigger ruler.

I'm stitching these little 'bonus blocks' using the triangles cut off from piecing the block centres. Instead of pinwheels, I pieced them into "broken dishes". Each one will finish at 2.5". It will be fun to play with them as I work on the bigger quilt.


  1. Looking good! Looking forward to seeing more!


  2. Oooo...I just love fun adorable fabrics like that! Probably because I have three girls!!

    Love the bonus tri's too :0) I'll have to remember about the Broken Dishes setting; I haven't used that one before. Thanks for sharing

  3. Hey Nancy: We did this quilt at the Quilt Rack in Ancaster when I worked there...we did it in Robyn Pandolph Christmas fabrics for a shop turned out really nice and was easy to make. I got to sew some of the blocks :-). Yours is looking very nice.
