My Design Wall this Monday....

The past week I have been working on some blocks that I needed to make for an exchange in the Quilters Board. I have gotten behind on my blocks and need to get caught up on this.

The first blocks I made are a bird theme. I found my block designs at the quilters Cache on the internet. These two blocks are called Squares and Stars

This block was also from quilters Cache and is called Lovers Knot. I like the way this one turned out.

This last one was paper pieced and is from the Carol Doak web site. The design is called Laced Star Variation.

I really enjoy doing paper piecing although these blocks are more time consuming but they turn out nice. One more block to make tomorrow and then I am back to work on the Antique car quilt.


  1. Love how you show cased the birds - I have some of that fabric. Quilter's Cache is a huge block store bank - love it. I have a lot of Carol Doak books and CD's, but have not been doing as much PP'ing of late. I can't wait to see more of your car quilt.

  2. I just came over from Vrooman's quilts. Love your blocks. The fussy cut centers with the birds are beautiful. And your paper pieced block is gorgeous!!

  3. I recognize the bird fabric.
    i used it here (
    for my mom as a wall hanging.
