Design Wall Monday--Dec 19, 2011

As I completely finished my Flowers for Nana Girl quilt yesterday, I am so ready to get back to piecing.  On my Design Wall today is the UFO pick for December, which by coincidence was a Christmas gift from my dear hubby.  This 2010 block of the month from Moda called Greenpiece just wowed me with its multitude of pieced stars and pretty wool applique blocks.  However, four blocks per month proved too much for me and I only got three months' worth of the pieced blocks completed.  I stowed each month's delivery in a drawer thereafter, sadly.

All the fabrics are yummy reproductions in warm and deep shades. 

There is a medallion with a tree in the center with wool leaves, which I plan to customize.  I only got as far as cutting the backgrounds for the wool blocks and prepping some shapes with freezer paper templates.  I'd like to get all the pieced blocks done by the end of the year, though I will not even meet my UFO goal doing that!  I have the week off work following Christmas and I hope to spend lots of time at my sewing machine.  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

That is looking good so far :-) It is kind of nice to get out a project that is already partly done.

Good luck getting your quilt done in the new year. The fabrics are beautiful and I am sure it will be worth the time it has taken.

I think I remember when you first wrote about this project. Pretty blocks. It's nice that you have a start. Have you worked with wool before? It's on my "never tried it" list.

Very rich colors on your UFO. Hope you find lots of time during your vacation to work on it.

Wow, love the colors in this BOM (should be B'sOM, right). I'm sure once you get back into it, you'll find it comes together quickly.
