Design wall Monday and other stuff

Finally, something new on the design wall. I found this pattern on the web and decided to play with a fat quarter pack from Robert Kaufman. There are also a few disappearing pinwheels in the churn dash pattern – I just can’t stop making those.

Most of the last several weeks have been spent working on kitchen cabinets at my sister / brother in law’s new home. It is a foreclosure and needs a lot of work.
