Design Wall and Stash Enhancement Report

This is truly a stash enhancement.  I recently participated in a strip swap at the Quiltville yahoo swap group.  So, I didn't gain or lose any fabric but I did enhance my strip collection.

Each of these bags/piles contain 10 strips-140 new strips!  I have already cut 2 1/2" squares off each strip for my blue double Irish Chain UFO.

I am also working on a mystery quilt with the Yahoo group Mysteryquilts4military.  So far I am almost finished with the 4th clue.  I am using scrappy red and blue fabric.  My fabric is all close in value so I did not get a very scrappy look.  Here are some of the blocks on my design wall-although I do not know the final lay out.  So far there are 10 of each block.  My white design wall does not compliment the top at all.

  1. Isn't it fun to go through all the strips?!?! You didn't get any of mine though. I can't wait to get strips from the next 2 swaps. I have a plan for pink and brown.
    Love your blocks!
