Design Wall Monday - February 1, 2010

I didn't post my stash report yesterday, because I didn't have anything to report.  I did buy 2 yards of Insulbrite on sale at Joann's last Monday to make an ironing board cover and tea cozy, but no quilting fabric.
I worked on multiple projects last week.  Unfortunately, I was very scattered and didn't finish anything.

Over the weekend, I made string blocks.  The picture below shows most of the blocks.  I completed 15 more blocks that are not in the picture.  Sorry, but my computer was not cooperating this morning so I wasn't able to turn the picture properly.  I started to sew them together this morning.  It was the first time I ever sewed string blocks and it won't be the last.  It really is fun and very fast.. 

I have decided to set specific goals for myself this week in an attempt to actually accomplish something.

*  Sew together string blocks, cut and sew border
*  Make 5 new blocks for pastel rail fence quilt, sew blocks together, add borders
*  Applique 4 snow globe blocks for The Quilting Post swap.

After typing it, it seems like a lot.  Hopefully, I can stick with my resolve.

Don't forget to visit Judy L's blog to see more design walls.


  1. love the strings. I made my first in the fall and I just finished a 3rd. They are so fun, easy, look good and fast.

  2. Love the string blocks. It is going to make a great, fun quilt. Thank you for visiting my blog and viewing my Civil War Blocks. It is always good to hear what others have to say.

    Have a great day.

  3. I like how you made the red string in the centres.

  4. Your string blocks look great. I was working on strings today myself.

  5. Strings are so wonderful; I might even see the bottom of my scrap bins eventually.

  6. I like those string blocks. Especially because they don't have the same center string.


I am interested in what you have to say so please leave a comment.
