Design Wall Monday

I finished up making the doll clothes (will do a post about them later) and finished step 4 of the Easy Street Mystery. It was time to clean off the sewing table.  I have fabric stacked everywhere and I have other things I want to work on.

Like the last 3 blocks for Barrister's Block Sow-A-Long.  I read on her blog that there are only 6 more blocks to do.  I've really enjoyed the easy pace of this project.  She'll post the new blocks when she can, in the mean time we don't stress or fuss about them.  The majority of these fabrics came right out of a scrap bag, the rest from strip bins.  After looking at this picture, I want to go in and replace that bright block in the upper left block.  It isn't playing well with the others.

I even added to the spool box with the leaders/enders.  It worked out each block made 1 spool.  Really I could sit down and just sew spool blocks because they are so fun to make.

This is the notebook with all the 61 blocks complete.  I wish my other on going projects were up to date but they aren't.  And I'm not going to stress about it.

Hopefully you will be able to see other design walls at Patchwork Times today.  It looks like the linky box is acting up again.  Be careful linky box, your name can be moved to the naughty list!

These blocks are lovely and I have made a pact with myself- no stressing. I print blocks as they come up on qal and I found that I had to tell myself it was ok to change my original ideas about a couple of recent projects. This is too much fun to stress about

Are these small blocks? 6" or so? I can't imagine them fitting into a notebook but I love the organization of it. Do you use regular sheet protectors? Great idea. I think I agree about the top left block.

I agree about the bright block. make it with some of the same fabrics from the other blocks. I no longer stress about the holidays, because I don't try to make items for those who won't appreciate them. Gift cards to the rescue!

I like your "no stress" attitude. that has been my motto for the past couple of years and it has made my life much easier. Impressed that you have Step 4 done already: I have my geese done but don't have them all sewn to Step 2, yet. :-)
