Design wall 11/30/15 string quilt ready for borders

I spent yesterday afternoon getting the rest of the rows sewn together. Those cornerstones were a pain but worth it in the end, I think…..

The top has outgrown my design wall as it is measuring about 96″ square. It’s been raining for the last several days so I can’t lay it outside and get a picture, so I folded the top in half, took 2 photos and put them together. Unfortunately there is a white area going across the pic but you can pretty much see what the quilt looks like at this point.

Starting in the upper left corner, you’ll notice the white sashings and they change to grays across the quilt, finishing with the black. I’m not sure if I like it or not………maybe once the borders are on and I can lay it out and see the whole thing I’ll like it better. We’ll see. Good thing is that it used a lot of leftover strings of fabric!! 👍

That’s it for me today. To see more walls visit


Design wall 11/23/15 progress on the string blocks

I made some progress on the strings blocks this week. All the rows are made, now I have to piece the sashing strips to go in between the rows. I have the first one done and sewn onto the bottom of row 1.

I’ll be glad when this is done. It does brighten up the wall though.😀

Anyway, that’s my wall for this week, to see more walls go to


Design wall 11/16/15 strings and book

My wall hasn’t changed much this week. I did sew the blocks together for the next 2 rows. Looks about the same as last weeks photo…….

I got a big surprise in the mail last week. I received an advance copy of my book 😳 I had no idea that I would get one early. I know that you can preorder it on But, wow, what a nice surprise!!👍

I guess that’s it for now. Better get back to quilting.

Design wall 11/9/15 string blocks

The string blocks are still covering my wall. I’m slowly making progress on them.


I am getting the small squares made into blocks. I am doing them diagonally because the sashing is changing as I go.

I have the next row moved over onto my smaller design wall which is beside my sewing machine. I’m trying to keep these organized and put together Without turning anything the wrong way!! 🙂


Blocks in progress.

That’s it for my wall this week. I did get borders added onto the quilt I made last week. I am doing a program tonight and it’s already packed in the car so I can’t take a picture.

Sharon did get our latest pattern written and it ‘s on our Etsy and Craftsy sites.


Guess I better go finish getting things together for tonight.

Design wall 11-2-15 strings and new quilt top

What a Monday it is here in Kansas City. Our Kansas City Royals WON the World Series last night!! We are So proud of our boys in blue!!

Kansas City also had another big win last week in Houston as our Janet Stone won Best of Show at the International Quilt Show!! Way to go Janet!!

Guess I better get back to my design wall. I have all the 5 1/2″ string blocks made and I have a few of them sewn into larger blocks.

I can sometimes get board working with projects that take a lot of time, so I threw this quilt together over the weekend.

All that’s left is to get the borders sewn on, which hopefully I can finish up today. It’s hanging in front of all the string blocks.

So that’s it for me this week. To see more walls go to
