Ugly Fabric & design wall

A friend ask me if I had a design wall and I answered no. But then sure I do. When next I needed one to figure out placement on this baby blanket, DH was still sleeping in the bed/design thing since it was 4-30 am I looked around and spied my board that is used to inlarge my ironing board (big board). Its only covered in cotton not flannel but they are holding on without pinning.
The fabric was in a friends stash that I inherited. I don't do blue so considered it ugly but needed a baby blanket and then there was this left over bunch from the DD quilt. I'll have to make 4 more of the gold brown. I found some red with baby chicks for the sashing. I guess this will be a stashbusting project since I have everything I need. Even the backing and batting, which I'll piece from left overs. I'm feeling smug about this project. And no I still have not gotten the borders on the DD.

This is a project that I put up because I couldn't figure out how I wanted to lay it out. I guess I need a design wall or EQ6. Probably won't get either one.
The butterflys are from HIA and are really beautiful. The black and white fabric has butterflys on it. I looked for fabric that would show some movement but I didn't see it.

Half Square Triangles done

I finished trimming all the half square triangles.

It looks like a lot more than 192. We shall see.

Judy's quilt along

I've not gotten the borders on the DD but I'm excited about a quilt along with Judy L.

These are the fabrics except I forgot to put the Ecru in the picture but I have it. All except one are left overs from the Jorney quilt I made last year.
