Stash/Design Wall Monday 9/16/13

Okay, not much de-stashing, but I did manage a tiny bit.  I finished my Dresden Block bag - 1/2 yard there.  I decided to give away the rest of that pile of scraps for another 1/2 yard, and found a fat quarter I'm giving to a member of the guild who likes a certain fruit.  That brings my total to 1.25 yards out for the past week.  Here are my numbers:
in 0.5 yds.; out 1.25 yds.
Stash in YTD: in 9.0 yds., out 100.06 yds.
Donated YTD: 43.46 yds
Net for 2013: out 91.06 yds
 
And on my design wall is another VA quilt in the works:
 
 
I'm always amazed with how much photos help - like those white square which I perceived as tan stand out too much.  The block with the heart is upside down.  Maybe I can swap the tan blocks for some cloud fabric - that would go with the planes.  And I think I'll write something around that heart flag, and maybe rearrange those fractured stars in another orientation.  What do you think?  Your suggestions always welcome.
 
I'm linking to Judy's Patchwork Times and Lyn's BOMs Away. How about you?  Did you destash or put something up on your design wall?  Oh, and come back tomorrow.  I found a book to giveaway!

I like the idea of writing something around the heart. You know the plane could be doing a loop and it made your heart flip....grin.

Hey, the cloud fabric would be really neat in there.

Yep the white stands out, how about an appliqued heart and a star on them?

Oh I think those white blocks are just begging for some applique :)

Gosh, your numbers are good! I'm just creeping along here. I like that airplane fabric.
