As usual I'm late. Does that count? If it does, I'll try to do better next Monday. OK, here is what has changed on the design wall.
I finished the String Quilt top I started and I'm piecing a backing for it now. I dislike making backings. I think when I'm done using all my large pieces of fabric for backings I'm going to stick to buying those huge one piece quilt backings! I have bought a few in the past, and they are great!
I did not even make a small dent in all the strips I have stored in the bins. So, yes, there are a lot more string quilts on the horizon. If I have peeked your interest in making a similar quilt, I must warn you that these types of quilts are totally addictive! Now, I'm looking forward to loading this string top on the long arm this weekend. It's colorful!
I am so interested in string quilts, and how they are made, and all the variations that I found this book on Amazon. "Strips & Strings" 16 sparkling quilts. by Evelyn Sloppy. It's all about scrappy quilts, and her need to use leftover fabrics that led Evelyn to write this very informative book. As quilters, I think we all recognize that need. I sure do after looking at my fabric stash!
I was so intent on finishing the string quilt top I sort of forgot about the Log Cabin Diamond wallhanging. I did about 5 little blocks just so I could mark some progress. Those dark ones up in the left corner. Not much, but any time I piece on this project, I consider it progress.
Later today I plan to blog about the" Bamboo"!
What's on your design wall?
