Design Wall Monday Night - Little Wishes

little wishes blocks nov 9

This is where I'm at with my Little Wishes blocks, a Pat Sloan scrap challenge. I sewed some of the 9 patches together while I finished sewing the borders on my Vacation Time quilt top.  I put what I have ready up to figure out what else I need to cut and get ready.

This challenge is *due* but of course, it's all for fun so no real pressure here. Plus, this quilt isn't really being made for anyone specific - it's more of a scrapbuster. 

I planned to keep all of the star points the lime green and didn't realize how dark most of my scraps are! I have seen some quilters put sashing between the blocks which I am now considering to hopefully lighten up the top.  

I also have a lot of scrap pieces that can make 2 1/2 inch squares so I'm considering making the top larger by doing a border of 9 patches. For the challenge the quilt only had to be crib size, but using up more scraps would be a bonus :)

We'll see. It's a work in progress of scrappy joy!

Do you prefer *scrappy joy* or *planned joy*?

great busting, Sarah! Thinking if you added a small sashing of the lime green those star points would really pop!!
love reading your posts ;-)
