Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall

There’s nothing on the design wall proper today. But on the ironing board I have these string blocks that I’m making quilt-as-you-go.   This project is not on my list of things to complete this year, so I don’t know how many more I’ll make before I put it away again.

Yesterday I put my walking foot on the sewing machine in preparation for my young friend to do a bit of quilting on her first quilt. But time got away from us and we didn’t get that far.

I could have changed out the foot and resumed working on my Scrappy Irish Chain, but my box of 1 1/2″ strips to cut spools for leaders/enders is very low.

I really need to cut some more 1 1/2″ strips to increase the variety, but I  haven’t done it yet.  Although I did cut some strips from my floral FQs (can I call them FQs if they’ve been cut into?)  I have 4 spools kitted and probably 5 or 6 more floral strips which I have not kitted.

But anyway, between the lack of spool kits and the walking foot already on the machine, I pulled out the string project which I started a couple of years ago.  I have a stack of 8″ batting squares and light floral backgrounds (which is probably why I thought of it) and my string box is overflowing.

(the string box and the 1 1/2″ strip box are the same size.)  I promise I can get the lid on the box — just barely.

I have a couple of errands to run this morning (I’ve got the day off) and then I think I’ll work on a few more of these blocks before switching the foot out and resuming work on the Scrappy Irish Chain.

Hop over to Patchwork Times to check out other design walls.

One Thought on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. You’ve been busy. I haven’t decided if I’m going to do 3″ spools yet. Have fun on your day off!
