What’s On My Design Wall September 17, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
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.
