Design Wall Monday January 28, 2013

This week finds me on a much needed ski vacation in Mammoth Lakes. Lots of snow here this year! So when we are done skiing I am working on my projects. The Janome always travels with me. The first project that needed to be finished by today are the neutral strings blocks for a Block Exchange.  I have about 24 of them done and need to make 38 of them.

Next I have the blocks made in one of the classes from Road to California Quilt Show. This was from Marti Michell class Seven Sisters Simplified and turned out to be a great way to make this block with NO set in seams! Below is a close up of the blocks and a picture of Marti with my blocks. It was a fun class.

The last thing on my design wall are blocks made in the second class at Road. This was a Mystery Class by Karen Sievert. (See Karen with my blocks below) The Pattern is called "Expect the Unexpected"  It has two different blocks that create a secondary pattern. Below are my blocks. This is a BIG quilt, 90x104, and will most likely be on my design wall for weeks to come.

What are you working on this week! See a multitude of other projects at Patchwork Times.

  1. Both of our classes were fun at Road this year. I wish we'd been able to get more done than we did... I've decided to trim down my 5 1/2" blocks to 5 1/4". I'm moving along with it. I'll be sorting and passing back the string blocks this week! Sandi
