Design wall 10/30/17 diamond string blocks
I made diamond blocks to use in the border of my last string quilt and after making them I decided to make a quilt using the diamond blocks. I spent some time yesterday getting the blocks made and up on the wall.
I’m not looking forward to having to match up all those points………..😳
That’s it for my wall this week. Check out more walls at http://smallquiltsanddollquilts.blogspot.com/2017/10/design-wall-monday-october-30-2017.html?m=1
Borders are on
I’ve had a busy week, but managed to find time to get the borders added on to my latest string quilt.
After posting pictures of my pieced borders, I got some positive remarks about them, so I designed another quilt using the diamond shapes. There seems to be no end to the use of strings!!
Design wall 10/2/17 string pieced border
I am not one that usually does a pieced border. By the time I get the quilt top made, I just want to get those borders sewn on, so that I can get to my next project. For the current string quilt I’m making, I decided that I would put a pieced border on it. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to make these. Now to get them finished up and on to the quilt.😀
