Design Wall Monday 9/8/14

My main design wall is covered with the blocks for the Tell It to the Stars mystery. Our assignment for September & October is to add sashing and cornerstones and to get them all joined together with the blocks. All the blocks in the upper right part of the photo are stitched together except for one long seam, and the blocks to the lower left (plus those hidden to the left and the bottom) are waiting to be sewn together.

Judy's instructions for this mystery had the sashing cut from the same fabric as the block backgrounds, which makes the stars and chains of squares float more than mine. I decided to go with the darker sashing because I am making my quilt scrappy, with a different background fabric in every block. I am hoping that this slightly darker fabric will help all the different background fabrics work together. I keep looking at that chain block at the lower right and thinking the background looks too light compared to the others. I had better replace it before I get any further in the process or it will just continue to nag at me.

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration!
