Monday Design Wall - New Project

Back in May 2010, I was the lucky winner of this Kona Cotton Roll-up during Amy's Creative Side Blogger Quilt Festival. Sew Fresh Fabrics was the sponsor and I have been eyeing the package for some time now ... not knowing what to do. Then a light blub went off. I pulled out some of the Califon collection from Mark Lipinski (for Northcott) and started cutting strips.




From the Roll-up, I subcut 10" strips from each of the WOF, then I cut 1.25" and 2" WOF strips; subcut into 10" strips from the black and started sewing. Don't worry -- this is NOT what the blocks look like -- only a little "strip teasing".




I can't believe I started something else, but I just cannot stand an empty design wall. This one may grow slowly, since my Moda Bake Shop Project will come first.
For more design walls, hop on over and visit Judy at Patchwork Times.

I really LOVE the black and white strips -- that would be so cool in a hexagon block! :)

So far so good. And I really like having more than one project going on. I have been focused on one for a while and it becomes more like work. Tomorrow I will split my time between at least two and maybe even put a top on the HQ so I have a third to jump to when I get frustrated with the main project.

Oooh, pretty! Very cool "strip teasing" going on your design wall. Can't wait to see what else "the strips" reveal!
