Design Wall Monday-Week 9

Mondays are my favorite blog day. I love to go to Judy L's Patchwork Times and start clicking links and go blog cruising to see what every one else has on their design walls.

I spent part of a day sorting my scraps again and was inspired to work on my strings project. I love sewing on phonebook pages. This is my newest version of Quiltville's Diamond Strings. I had planned to work on Basket Weave Strings but the Diamond blocks are farther along so I am working on that. I had to sew a few blocks together to see what it will look like. I love when you can turn a couple blocks different and get a new design.

We are having a "heat wave" here this week. Our heat wave consists of 5 days of 95 degree plus and is the top news story of the day. (When we get snow or ice, that's breaking news and we get a flake by flake report.) Anyhow, I am going to do my grocery shopping early this morning, get more onions on the dehydrator, and then I will get to sew the remainder of the day.

Oh, the microwave tray, I don't have to replace it. :) That's a good thing--more fabric money.

I love the way these blocks are tied together with that pretty dark green.

This looks like an interesting quilt and I love the white and how it brings it all together! Wonderful way to use up scraps too!!! Nice! Yes we in Washington are all suffering in the heat! Wenatchee has been unbearable at times!!! We can't even sit and enjoy our deck mornings or evenings. It is supposed to hit 101 today!
