Design Wall Monday!!

Hi all,

Went away this weekend to a market in Southern Ontario.  It was a 6-7hr drive for us but well worth it.  We had a good time and made a few good purchases.  Unfortunately the quilt shops in the area were closed by the time we got time to go.  Oh well!!  Like I need more fabric.
 We did get some excitment - the power went off while we were in Micheals craft store and we had to leave our purchases behind and pick them up on Sunday and then when we got back to the hotel the fire alarms were going off and the fire trucks were there.  Nothing serious just set off by the power outage.
I did get quite a bit of sewing done in the car.  I put together the "Sunburst" english paper piecing pattern that I designed last week.  If I say so myself I think it turned out ok.  I think I will put another ring of white hexagons around it and then make it into a table topper.  What do you think??

I will post the pdf of the templates tomorrow for anyone who is interested.

I tried to snap a photo of the fall leaves as we were zooming  by but the picture does not do the colours justice.  I will try to get some more fall leaf photos later this week.  By this weekend they will be all gome in our neck of the woods.
Have a great day!!


  1. Your Sunburst turned out wonderful and a table topper would be perfect for it :)

  2. Oh yeh, it's better than just ok - I really like this design, especially with the 2 golds for the kite shape - makes it so dimensional. I hope you don't mind if I save this in my someday file...

  3. It would make a wonderful table runner. Happy Thanksgiving!
