Design Wall Monday!

Oh my goodness!  I made enough of these to say I have a quilt.  The blocks are all trimmed and ready to be sewn together.  Woo hoo!  I used this tutorial for these cross string blocks after being inspired by this quilt during the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival.  I trimmed the blocks to 7" and I have made 65 of them.  I miscounted and made an extra block.  I think with borders, it will be just fine.  Not huge but nice.  I used mostly scraps for this one.  I had a lot of green and more than enough of the aqua/blue scraps to make this work.  I think I could do several in fact.  I was asked at a quilt shop if I was a green person.  Hmmmm.  Maybe!

What's on your design wall?  Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday.


  1. Wow, those blocks are really lovely! It's going to be a great quilt and maybe that extra block is just what the backing will need.

  2. Really lovely! And i love green!!

  3. Such a beautiful quilt! I love your use of scraps. Very creative! I'd love to make a version of this someday.
