Design wall Monday 7/16/12

I’ve made a total of 96 string blocks. There are no scraps left. I’m now into the stage of joining them into 4 patches, then 16 patches. I have these 4 of 6 total finished. It will have a small yellow 30’s fabric border then more of the aqua to finish it off.

The previous post has more information about this UFO of my grandmother’s.

Hopefully I will finish piecing this week.

Happy Quilting,

This is wonderful! I love that you've used vintage fabrics that have a personal history. The two tone background design is very striking - I must remember this.

I like the 2 color centers and that makes it a lot easier to put together than a solid square. It sure was a labor of love, taking all of those blocks apart to reuse the fabrcs.
