Design Wall Monday - Oct 5

My blogging has been lacking for the past couple of weeks, mostly because my current project is something that can't be shared yet.  However, I just reached a stage with it where I need to alternate it with a leader/ender project, so I will be pulling out my scrappy pineapples again and hoping to make some more progress on that project over the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, I also pulled out this old UFO.  It has been sitting on my shelf in this state - top completed except for some hand stitching to turn back the edges of the triangles - for the past 5 1/2 years. It's about time to move it forward, I think :)

The pattern is Mexican Star, and once I get the remaining corners turned, I just have to figure out how I want to quilt it. Custom quilting for sure, because I want to keep the 3-D effect of all those curves.


  1. I haven't finished mine, either! I wasn't happy with my center square -- not enough zing -- and just haven't gotten back to it. Maybe in 2016 ....

  2. I have that pattern too - haven't started mine, but everytime I see it somewhere, it makes me want to start it! I might have to go dig it out....
    Yours looks great by the way :)
