Design Wall Monday

Somehow through a link
on Judy's stash report
I came across the
What a neat idea:
join and sew blocks,
for a total of 350 a year,
Goal for January is 20.
Sounds more doable for me
than committing to full tops
or completed quilts.
So I signed up with Shelly
and selected my blocks.
First off:

Swoon block # 3,
a long ago UFO
that lingered due to a
major cutting operator error...
Had to add some additional seams,
but I finished 1 new block!

Next up I had seen Pat Sloan's
It used up some scraps
and no longer loved white fabric.
After: I got one 8 x 8 block done -

The single square size is 2 1/2 inch.

And lastly my real project Grand Illusion,
now working on the border.

After: 6 blocks completed.

Yeah - a total of 8 blocks
for the 20 blocks in January challenge.
Not quite there yet,
but am committed to sew 
more GI border blocks
to hit the goal.

Linking up to 
what's on your wall?


  1. I was thinking that making 350 blocks in the year would make a huge quilt. DUH -- any block you make for any quilt works. Lightbulb moment. Good luck doing this -- it should help you make progress on several fronts.

  2. What a cool idea! I love your Swoon block. That is one I have wanted to make, but haven't... yet. And your Hip to be Square block is great, too.

  3. I almost missed your post - didn't expect to see the red/white block from you. Good idea to get some UFOs out of the way. Hope you are practicing the quilter's knot...LOL The Swoon block is really pretty!!!


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
