Monday Design Wall - Card Trick Strings

The String Blocks are done! The 12 columns are sewn, next will be to join them to finish the center top, add the blue border, then string dresdens. This will be the last time on the design wall, with hopes it will be ready for quilting by the weekend (I think I said that last week).

For more design walls, hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times. I can't wait to count this one against my 2011 Stash Report -- it really cleaned out the strings and leftovers. I am sure the backing will be pieced to stay with the theme of "Scrappy 2011".
