On the Design Wall this week....

Colorful 16-Patch blocks

It promises to be a busy week, and my schedule is REALLY full, but I'm hoping to put in a little time on the Quilter's Club Mystery Quilt IV.   Is anyone else working on this one?

It's sure used up a lot of my scraps!   My gallon size scrap bag of 2 1/2 inchers was overflowing, and now it only has a handfull of strips, mostly in whites and lights. 

Saturday evening my son and his girlfriend played with blocks.  They took the pile of four-patchs and put them together in groups of four for me. I got them sewn up last night.  I LOVE the super scrappy look they put together.  They've enjoyed helping me with a couple of quilts.

Perhaps the borders?

I have to admit, I skipped  step 2 and need to get back to it.  I've put together the colored patches, and finished the border strips with their triangle of color in one corner, but I've only got a measly  five blocks done with color on two corners.  So, the goal for this week is to get those finished, because I'm certain that the next step has us combining them in groups of four. 

Linking up with Patchwork Times really does help me keep on track.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Come back and visit soon!

Only 5 done?  91 more to go!


  1. What scrappy fun! I love it when family or friends get involved and help arrange blocks or pick out fabric.

  2. Great idea for the border, I love it!!
