Design Wall Monday

 My design wall this Monday morning is a little bit of a mess.  Lots of odds and ends on there.  Just several different projects in the works.  
First off is my Wheel of Fortune or Road to Fortune, it is called both.  This is the UFO that I started working on the other day.  I still only have 4 completed blocks done but have a few more half blocks ready.  I do love this one but I think I need a better selection of scraps than I currently have so that may make this one a slow finish as I gather scraps.  
Then at one point I got a little bored but didn't really want to drag out anything major to work on.  I made 2 more blocks for my scrappy stars.  We are making 2 blocks a month so these will be for October, but by the time October comes around I will probably make a couple more.  These are great to use up those scrap 2.5" squares.  
 I've also added a few more bowties.  I can't remember my exact count right now but I have it written down upstairs.  

 I also worked on my block for Barbara Brackman's block of the week.  I made the block that was posted last week, it is the one on the bottom.  The one for this week is a hard one, so I will try to get it done sometime this week.  
 Last but not least, I pulled another UFO out to work on.  This one is an older scrappy bargello, (quiltville pattern) that I started doing in greens.  I had to do a ton of pressing because it was all smashed in a box.  
 I had 11 blocks finished and the strips sewn together for another 13 blocks for a total of 24 blocks.  Well, now I know why I put this one away....I didn't have enough green strips to make the 48 blocks that I had intended.  :(  I will work on it as far as I can get with what I have.  
I pulled a few more green strips from my 2.5" strip tote and now I have enough for a total of 30 blocks.  I may be able to get one or two more done over that but for now that it all.  I will just get it as far as I can and see how I like the size.  My biggest problem is the OCD in me that wants it to come out even on the sides and bottom. LOL!  

So that is what I have on my design wall!  To see what others are working on go over to Judy's blog and take look.  

Oh, I got a few more pillowcases in for donation, I'll post those in my next post!  If anyone else is interested in donating pillowcases for a good cause, click on the tab at the top of my blog to read the details.

I have had the same issue with my scrappy trips quilt - I think they have to come out even so I keep making more.

What a beautiful lot of patterns on your design wall. Love the bowties, especially. :) You had asked about my little baskets---I only have five done, I just recently decided to play with this pattern. :)

Everything on your design wall looks great! I made a couple extra star blocks too.
