Blue Design Wall

The Blue Wall is growing.  You can really tell how tiny the crosses are against the 4 1/2" star blocks. I made the Sparkle Punch last year using a solid light gray background.  This year, I am using scrappy off white, beige and tan --- and will make it scraps for the points.  Several more blue star points are cut out, but I am making them as leaders and enders so it is coming along slowly.  With three days off, lots of sewing will be going on.

The Blue wall is for the 2014 Rainbow Challenge hosted by Angela at So Scrappy.

Your blocks are really cute, love the stars especially! Leaders and enders really make piecing less boring and it seems that you get much more done.

Your blocks all look good.
I love your assembly of the stars. I'd like to do mine that way too, but can't work out how to make right angle seams on the machine. Perhaps you have a tip?

Lovely Sparkle Punch. I've never been able to do the leader/ender thing. And I wish I had three days off!
