Design Wall Monday

My regular design wall is too crowded this week, so I'm using the floor and my sewing cabinet in addition to the wall --all because of being on a 4-day retreat.  My Winter Friendship Star went with me to the retreat and the top is almost finished.  It still needs one small inner border and a pieced border "yet to be designed" using the left over HST blocks.  Hopefully by next week the top will be done.

Another project I worked on and finished was the backing for the QOV,  posted on Stash Report.  Here is the top that I promised to show you.  This was donated by Cindy L and I really love this fabric and colors.  The fabric line is from Michael Miller, but I don't know the name of the collection.  Thanks Cindy.  I hope a female soldier receives this one. 
I'll show more of my projects from retreat later in the week as I get them off the floor!  Now I have to start getting ready for our upcoming quilt show this weekend - March 17 and March 18.  If any of you are near St. Louis, be sure and come.  We have over 450 quilts, lots of vendors, special quilt exhibits from Ricky Tims and Jackie Robinson (both who have ties to St. Louis) and lots more.  It's being held at Queeny Park near Highway 270 and Manchester.


  1. Great Design Wall this week. The Winter Friendship Star is cute. That Blue and Green quilt looks a lot more complicated than it is! Love it!

  2. Dar, I want to come to the quilt show and hope my weekend schedule allows it :)

  3. Love the Winter Friendship Star, that is a beauty!!

  4. Your Friendship Star quilt is looking good! I wish that I lived close enough to go to the quilt show, but enjoy yourself.
