Design Wall Monday and Stash Report

This is where the action is going on in the sewing room right now... I'm approximately 1/3 into quilting the Cedar Tree signature auction quilt.  It's easy-peasy to quilt, just squiggles and loops, circles around names, and outlines of the trees.  And maybe I'll get it done this week, because it's ERB testing week and I have a delayed schedule with a little more flexibility in the mornings.
On the design wall: I've been playing with a few 3.5" string blocks, with some of the crumbs that Grandma has been bringing over.  Not much actual piecing has been going on though.  I keep wanting to change that.  Still haven't finished organizing the sewing room and stash.

I have been sewing string blocks off and on, mainly off. When the basket gets full I stitch up some string blocks. Those tulips are beautiful.
