Design wall 6/2/14 assembling the rows

My goodness, how did we get to June already? Time sure flies by fast!

I have had a busy week with lots of sewing and quilting getting done. I hope to get this off my design wall this week.

I am excited to finally be sewing the rows together! I have half of them assembled!! Yea!! Once they’re done, I’ll sew the sashing strips to go in between the rows. I have them cut along with the cornerstones,

I’ve also made more squares for the basket weave quilt that I’m working on.

They are so fast to make. I’m not using a foundation for them, I just cut strips around 7″ long or so (I don’t measure them) and just sew them together until they are at least 6 1/2″ wide.

Once I get the strips sewn together, I trim them to a 6 1/2″ square.

These will go on the wall as soon as I finish up the scrappy blue quilt that’s on there now.

I also pieced my ‘Gelato” quilt last week and it’s going on the machine today for a quick panto.

Ok, I guess that’s it for now. I’m ready to get to quilting. Be sure to check out more design walls over at http://www.patchworktimes.com
Have a good day!
