Design Wall Monday–February 11, 2013

Shop Hop is coming up in about a month here in Atlanta.  This year, each shop will be giving out 10 strips of fabric that are 2 1/2” x 22” or half a strip.  There are 10 shops so if someone collects all the strips, they will have 100.  Each shop is making a quilt from the strips and that is what I am working on today.

Here is the start.  Since each strip is only about 20-22 inches long, there is not enough to go all the way around the focus fabric.  I paired up the strips with similar colors and will make 50 of these blocks.  Then I will sew them into pairs and finally into 5 rows of 5 blocks.  That should get it to about 60 inches square before borders.  So far, so good. 

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times.
