Stringing in the Rain
It was a totally different day today. We reached 50, but it poured by the buckets all day. My goal over the last two days was to tame these strings.
Does it look tame enough now? I just can't seem to control those greens though - they are in everything I pull it seems.
After seeing Angela's Rainbow Strings with the skinny black and color on one side and lights on the other - BAM! I had just enough left over skinny strips from the BEAR quilt to make centers for 30 blocks and I went from there.
My phone book papers were 8" square and I would have over extended
the paper to get an 8.5", but my skinny blacks would not work that . But that is OK as a finished 7.5" block is fine and they worked up a lot of those strings.
I have next on my list to get to the borders on the Meadow's Mountains quilt, but......
I am going HERE instead. They have their annual in-store $5 yard sale (entire shop) and $8 yard extra wides. I am not on a fabric diet and I do have a list of things that I need for finishing all those quilts in that large tub.
Now how can this not entice you to do a little shopping? And lunch out is in order , too.
