What to do with strings

   I ended up with only 4 string blocks from the weekend play time.  The rest of the time was spent hemming slacks, but that is another story.  So only 4 string blocks, and a little imagination, some fusible pieces and  you get......


A small table topper hanging!  Ready to be quilted and displayed next month.

   A small project always motivates me to tackle what needs to be worked on....so  next up are the scrappy blocks on the design wall.    I have 3 rows sewn.....and it really looks much better than this photo shows.
   I get to the assembly stage on some projects and just get a bit bored.  OK, I get a lot bored.   But I rely on my self imposed rule of  3 to prevent this from becoming a full/total/complete UFO.



    So I am numbering rows and hoping for a good movie just made for sewing rows while watching.  This will go in my stack of quilts for donations.....to replace one I will deliver on Wednesday.  You can never have too many quilts to share, and there is always someone who needs to be covered.   Especially at this time of year, I am thankful I can share my gift.   Stay warm, and  Happy stitching.

  1. My daughter would like this as she is a cardinal lover. I have made her two pillows with a cardinal in the past.

  2. I have difficulty doing 'low volume" but your additions made the low volume string blocks sing. (pun not intended, but it made me laugh when I re-read it.)

  3. This beautiful little topper will compliment the winter quilt you did a couple of years ago, won't it? (Has it been that long--I am awful at reckoning the passage of time)
    Nice quilt for donating. So good of you to share.
    BTW, I get bored at assembly stage a lot, too!

  4. CUTE table topper! Love the future donation scrappy string quill. What are those block sizes and the center's strip width? Do you sew them on paper?

  7. Cute little topper - a red cardinal is such a sign of the season. The scrappy quilt is stunning - may just borrow your pattern for next year.
