Swooning over String beans for a Design Wall Monday

Okay this design wall is the result of the sewing I got finished on Saturday. One more Swoon block (that makes 6 of 9 done) and a bunch of String Beans blocks, 22 of the 45 I plan to make.



This was a good combination of sewing since the Swoon block took lots of attention and patience, and the String Beans blocks are like eating potato chips - you can't stop at one!



String Beans is a new pattern by Loft Creations. My plan for this quilt includes polka dots, checks, plaids and stripes - yikes! I'm going to do 45 blocks - 5 rows of 9 - with that dotty yellow as the sashing and the border.



And this is my latest Swoon block with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I'm liking this one too!



So the sewing for last week was pretty productive. Now I still haven't started the snowman wallhanging I want to do, or my Schnibble for this month. Oh well, hopefully this week will have some quality sewing time for me and for you!

Happy stitching-
carol fun

  1. Your string beans are going to have a cool secondary pattern with that sashing. Can't wait to see it.

  4. Your Swoon blocks are gorgeous!!! I love seeing the new ones. Perhaps you could eat a bag of potato chips while making String Beans blocks??? I'm so happy you're enjoying them.

  5. Love the Swoon block--yummy! So are your string beans. I just bought this pattern from Stephanie too and plan to do a scrappy theme like you. The dots are to die for!
