Design Wall Monday 12-03-18

Last week I was busy working on a gift, so no pictures until later.  However I did find time in the evenings for hand stitching the hexies for Starry Night.

All 10 of the full hexie flowers are completed, so now they are being stitched onto the background.  I am also working on the 4 half-hexie flowers.

One of my favorite things to do at a thrift store is pick up old quilt books especially the series Great American Quilts by Leisure Arts.  I am always on the lookout for different or unusual quilt blocks and I found one in the Great American Quilts 1993.  The name of the block is Texas Star.

Isn’t it great?  It really wasn’t difficult to piece although you need to be gentle with the bias.  The plan is to make 6 blocks to form a star.

Check out all the other quilting inspiration at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.

    I have several of those Great American Quilts books. I guess I need to look at them again for ideas!
