Design wall 6/27/16 string quilt borders

Just a quick update here on my design wall today. I planned on getting all the borders sewn on yesterday but we ended up taking a 4 hour road trip to visit relatives. It was a nice day even though we came through rain on the way home. This cloud was pretty neat looking.

It was just a long narrow cloud going acros the sky underneath all the other clouds. Once we passed under it the sun came out. We were hoping that it might have rained at home while we were gone, but no……still dry as a bone. Oh well.

I grabbed my current state bird embroidery block as we went out the door, so that I would have something to work on in the car.

I got the bird done. 👍🏻


I really need to get back to working on these blocks more often. This one is Kentucky……..if I ever make it to the M’s, they’re going to take forever, with all the states that start with M.😳

Anyway, back to my design wall. I had a little bit of time after we got home last night to at least get the first 2 borders sewn on.

I’m going to put a solid black border on next, to finish it off, then call it done. So that’s my wall, to see more go to http://www.patchworktimes.com

Early morning sewing

What do you do when you wake up on a Saturday morning at 4:45????? Get up and sew!! At least that was the choice I made this morning.😀 Yesterday I came up with an idea for another string quilt, but I have to finish the current one before I can start on the next one. So I got up this morning and headed downstairs to sew. 

It’s now ready for some string borders.😀

Design wall 6/20/16 another string quilt

Last week was a busy week quilting, so I didn’t work on this until last night. Since I had the squares all ready all I had to do was sew and cut them, which took maybe an hour. Now they are on the wall and ready to be sewn into rows. Quick and easy….so far.


Anyway, that’s my wall this week. Check out more walls  at http://www.patchworktimes.com

Design wall 6/13/16 string quilts

I worked over the weekend getting the borders put on the string quilt that was on my wall last week.  My first plan was to only put a string border on the right side and bottom then put the shadow behind them. As I looked at the quilt, I decided that maybe putting a string border all the way around the quilt would look better, although I’m still thinking about that partial string border idea…..😳 maybe not…..Meanwhile, I cut fabric for my next string quilt and when I get time I’ll start sewing on it. It should go together quickly, if I can find time to work on it.


Here’s the finished top from last weeks design wall. Do you like the border??

That’s what I’m working on this week, to see more design walls go to www.patchworktimes.com, I’m also linking up with http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.com/ if you want to see what others are doing with scraps.

Design wall 6/6/16

Here’s a quick show of what’s on my wall today. It’s another string quilt that I’ve been playing around with.


All the blocks are sewn into rows and ready for the sashing strips. I’m tinkering around with adding a shadowed border on part of the quilt but haven’t quite decided if I will do that or not. For now it will have to wait on the wall until I get time to get back to it.

That’s it for my wall this week.
