Design wall 12/7/15 string quilt top finished

The top is finally done! Yea!! I just put a thin grey border and then a small black outer border to finish off the top. I do like it much better, now that it’s done and I can see the whole thing laid out.

Now I have to get back to my Kansas row by row quilt………we’re supposed to bring them to our January guild meeting……….I still fon’t have a clue as to what to do with the rows.? Oh well, Β it’s back on the design wall and maybe something will come to me this time.

That’s it for me this week. To see more walls check out


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.πŸ˜€

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


Design wall 7/28/14 Rock house quilt

I finished the basket weave quilt top and the Florida quilt top that I was working on last week. I will try to get them both quilted in the next week or so and show pics of them then. The basket quilt ended up being about 102″ square. Whew! I still have lots of strings left so I need to come up with another quilt that uses strings.
As for my design wall this week, in going through drawers, I came across these blocks that were made for me years ago by members of my guild. They gave them to me as thank you blocks for all the work I was doing for the guild.

The pattern for the quilt was in McCall’s Quilting, February 2003. Luckily that is printed on the block instructions. Hopefully I still have the magazine!! LOL!!
Anyway, I will make this my 10 minute a day project, and make enough blocks to complete a larger quilt. It seems like the pattern called for over 60 blocks, so I know I need to make quite a few more blocks.
So that’s my wall this week, to see more check out


Design wall Monday 5/19 sashing

My scrappy blue blocks are still on the wall this week. I only have 4 more blocks to make, then I’ll start making the setting triangles for the sides. I got all the blocks squared up last night and went through my blue fabrics and found one to use for the sashings.


I’ve also been making a square a day on the scrappy blocks. Here’s what I have so far. These are so fast!! πŸ™‚

I have to hurry up and finish the blue squares in order to have room to put up the basket weave blocks. As you can see, there’s not much room! LOL!!

Anyway, that’s my wall for this week. To see more design walls check out
