I’m sure a few of you wondered what I was thinking last week when I posted the blocks that were on my design wall…….😳
Here’s the finished top. 😀
That’s it for my wall this week. Check out more design walls at www.patchworktimes.com
I see I didn’t post any design wall updates the whole month of April. I’ll start May off sharing my current design wall project. It’s another string quilt. I am having way too much fun making string quilts!
That’s it for today, to see more design walls check out www.patchworktimes.com
Eight down with 12 to go! The snow this past weekend allowed me lots of extra time to spend in my workroom quilting and sewing. I guess maybe there is something good about snow. LOL!!

It will get an edge to edge quilting design on it. The string sashing was perfect for finishing off those blocks. This quilt will be one of the quilts I will show in my lecture on string quilts that I am working on putting together.
Now back to sewing more strings!
I have become so addicted to string quilts. Whether I’m making squares or sashing units,it doesn’t matter. I just love sewing those strings together and coming up with different ways to put them together into quilts!
I bought these blocks online probably 16 years or so ago. At the time I thought it would be a fast way to put a quilt together (save time by not having to piece the blocks) and have something to practice my machine quilting on.
Needless to say, I never did get them made into a quilt top.
I always knew I had them in a box somewhere………but where?????
But right now I have to get back to the longarm. Check out more design walls at wwwpatchworktimes.com
I got an idea a while back about using EE Schenk’s gelato fabric in a zig zag design. I have a few of the different colors that it comes in, and since I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, I went with one that doesn’t have a big noticeable change in the colors.
Much faster! Then I can move on to another project. Maybe I’ll try another zig zag with one of these colors. I think the top one would look good.😀 but for today, that’s what’s on my design wall. Check out more design walls at www.patchworktimes.com
