Design Wall Monday 7/13/15


I will be working on these strattas for my Let's Book It project.


I have them all finished and trimmed to the required 2.5" width.  I need to sort them into nice equal piles for the braids with a balance in scrappy browns and neutrals - then I build.


And I would like to get these string blocks finished.  My tote of skinny strings is down to the shorter bits, so I had to cut some more longer ones from my FQ totes. I know - I wanted to use those strings up and I had to cut more - geesh!  Now I can work on these.

See what other's are playing with at Patchwork Times.

Sewingly Your,

  1. You are so well organized. Cutting a few more is still cutting stash. Have fun!

  2. Cutting and stitching is what we do.. Keep rotating those Scraps. Are your braids going to be made with both of these String blocks?

  9. Quilt prep work is a pill. Scraps, strips, tumblers. Describes my days lately.
    You Let's Book It Braid progress is looking good! I'm getting excited about this one. Totally understand cutting into stash to use up existing scraps : )

  10. Well, you wouldn't want to run out of strings, right? That would be tragic...
