Design Wall Monday January 3 2011

It is the first design wall of 2011!  My wall is full of scraps from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I am either going to need to get a bigger design wall or finish something off to make room for more scrap projects.  I think  the snowballs are about ready to be put together but then I need to decide whether to leave the string blocks alone or turn them into stars.  Given the number of blue scraps I'm trying to use up I could do both!  Make sure you head over to Judy's blog to see what everyone is up to in the new year.

Lovely, snowball and 9 patch has always been one of my favorite patterns.

All of your blocks are great. I like the snowball quilt. Opportunity for some gorgeous quilting in the white centers.

I'm so impressed you were the first one to post! Wow. I'm late today as dh is home and we went to the gym first thing. I like your snow balls. Are you going to put the string blocks as a border around the snowballs? Maybe put a single fabric as a small border between the two types of blocks... just thinkin' out loud here... B.

Looking good! Oh, all those blue scraps you are using. This month I'm doing yellow. Love Anne's project too!

I use so little blue in my sewing that I'd be hard pressed to come up with this many pieces! Looking very scrappy and good.
