Design Wall and Stash Report

What was on my design wall is now all sewn together and has joined the to-be-quilted queue:
What is on the Megaquilter is still on there. I haven't quilted any since our plumbing problems.
 I dug out a long-slumbering project and have begun working on it, as I described yesterday. It's , the Frugal Patch from Quilter's Cache, but I'm amping it up by making it into a color study of sorts. I first printed out this pattern in 2006.
Now I have a new project on my design wall - you can check out others a the Patchwork Times link-up.
 I'm not sure how much I want to cut before sewing more together, so I do a little bit here and there. So far I've been working on the blues because there are so many of them. At one point I cut a rectangle of almost every fabric in my stash, but my stash has grown since then.
 It's the kind of quilt that needs to be played with on a design wall, so it will probably be up there for awhile.

 I haven't killed my orchids yet! Adding an ice cube once a week is a little difficult when the pots are so tiny. Some of them just get watered more normally. This one has two bloom stalks; the first one I bought has one, and the other four were discounted because they had lost theirs, or been damaged.
 The one on the far left is regrowing a bloom stalk, I think. Exciting times.
This is the first one I bought, still going well.

FYI - Since Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times is no longer doing "Design Wall Mondays", I talked to her and got permission to continue Design Wall Mondays at my blog:

I hope to see your posts on future Mondays, Judy Hansen
