Design Wall Monday

The Shooting Stars blocks have all been framed and are now being joined together with the sashing. The lower half of the quilt is done. Once I get the rest of it together, I will need to decide on a border. I'm not sure if I want to use a single fabric or go scrappy. I couldn't get a decent photo of all the blocks, so just imagine these two photos joined together.

There were a few comments last week from readers who were not familiar with this star pattern. You can find a tutorial for this block at Anyone Can Quilt. I call this design "Shooting Stars" because that was the name of the class when I learned this pattern, but I have also heard it called "Wink and a Smile."

I am sharing with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag.
