Caught up!

The piecing has been going well for me in the quilt along. I now have all the setting blocks stitched together and have caught up with the star blocks. Yay!
This is the block I've made for week #8...

and here's a look at all eight weeks of blocks, shown with the setting blocks (and empty spaces which are for the remaining star blocks coming up in the next few weeks).
I love having them laid out on the living room floor for me to look at. It is so motivating to see it grow, block by block. I guess I can't leave it like this though, as tempting as it is. I'm going to have make a design board to put my quilt blocks on so that I can enjoy works-in-progress and not worry about them being stepped on. ;o)

  5. Katherine I have a carpet design wall too.. unfortunately for me, the quilt police (aka the furry critter) likes rolling on my carpet design wall and causes a huge kerfuffle and blocks have been known to stick to him after his 'critique'..

  6. Love your blocks and setting blocks! My design wall is a piece of molton and two coat-/pants-hangers... hung into two archive-boxes! Kind of a take-away design-wall!
