Spring to Finish Design Wall

>> Monday, May 10, 2010

Here's my Design Wall for this Monday Morning :

I am starting to work on making a flock of geese blocks for the borders of a quilt. This is one of the projects on my Spring to Finish list. I also have several selvages cut at 6 inches and 5 foundation piece ready for them. I'm planning to get something 'extra' done this week.

Check out Judy's links to other Monday Design Wall quilters.

My Midway Point 'Spring to Finish' Finishes :

Four String Blocks finished.

I am making one of these each week for the entire year. My sister is doing the same thing - but differently! I'm counting each block as a finish because I can - and because I need to stay caught up to actually make this quilt THIS year!

Sew Modern Bee Block

May is the first month of the Canadian Sew Modern Bee. This block is for Marianne. I made a bonus block for her too (but it doesn't count as a finish).

Mystery Basket Block

I finished a mystery basket block too. It measures 18 1/2 inches square. I was supposed to do 2 blocks, but the last block hasn't been posted yet. So - this counts as a finish!

Total Finishes So Far = 6

Finishes to Go = 5
{Of Course I Left the Biggest Ones until the End!}

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Love your striing blocks. I just started making some a couple of weeks ago: first time. I make one when I get tired of whatever else I am working on: they are kind of a break from applique and/or quilting. Now I am really looking forward to the quilt they will become.

It looks like you are well on your way. A string quilt is on my to do list.
