Monday Design Wall
































Too cold outside this weekend to do anything but sew (what a shame). I am working on a scrappy string quilt -- can't wait to start quilting this big guy. I have finished 8 columns, with 6 next to the machine. Not sure whether to add a border -- too soon to tell. The blocks are 6" square, 14 across, 14 down. I won't be home until very late tonight, but can't wait to see the other design walls.

Hello from southwest Louisiana. I like your quilt and the colors. Sewing is about all we can do in the cold. One bright spot it is suppose to warm up. Come summer we will wish we had just a little cool weather. Sharie - Moss Bluff
