Klunky Korners
I debated using the cheddar for the hour glass blocks and decided against it.  I really like the red print.  I think what I like most about it is the size of the print.  The pattern is closer together; not certain why it appeals to me more...maybe it is because it reads more like a solid that calms down all the churndash blocks.  Well one way or another I'm committed now.  The neutrals are all scrappy, only the red is constant throughout.  Once I've got it all together I'll be scouring my stash for a suitable border fabric.  Maybe the cheddar will come back into play?  This is a project done with several others swapping the churndash blocks.  The pattern is one of Bonnie Hunters and can be found FREE on her website.

These blocks are from two other projects I'm doing.  The two on the top are a Quilt Square Quilt Along with Jo's Country Junction.  The third block needs to be finished in March.  I'll be working on it this week.

The pink block is the only one so far in this project from a workshop I took a couple of weeks ago.  The pattern is called Autumn Rush by Myra Mahy.  I've got most of it cut out already.  Lot's of HSTs to be made.

I'm also proofing out instructions for a workshop that I'll be teaching in September.  Probably like you the list goes on and on...  What's on your Design Wall today?  Check out more through the links on Patchwork Times.

I think you made a good choice on the red fabric for the Klunky Korners quilt. The small print in the red is a nice counterpoint to the large, chunky design and some of the large prints in those blocks.
I love the blocks you are making in the quilt square quilt-along. Those have been very tempting to me--I love Lori Smith's patterns and I believe that is what you are using, but I have put myself on (another) no-new-projects diet. Things have been getting out of hand (again).
The Auntumn Rush block is very pretty--do you make more of the same pattern? If so, do you make them in different colors?
