I finished with clue # 3 of On ringo Lake
mystery quilt. I just used the sew and flip method, But I made sure to count and keep the right and left pieces separate. Knowing me, I would have just kept going past the number I needed. This helped me make sure I made the change. There is a link up on Bonnie Hunter's quiltville blog
to see everyone's progress.
I bought these fat quarters during a sale on craftsy. They are aged muslin. They look almost brushed. I don't have a plan for them, I just loved them and they were on sale.:)
I had a chance to do some string piecing. Jo's country junction is having a weekly challenge to work on finishing the quilts in the book string fling by Bonnie Hunter. The quiltville book I have nearly all the quilts started or finished is scraps and shirttails
not string fling. I too was hoping to do all the quilts from one book. so for my reckoning in scraps and shirttails...
Virginia Bound is done, used on our bed until I put Grand Illusion on our bed.
Cactus patch is a top waiting for it's turn on the quilt frame
Star gazing is a top waiting to be quilted
Carolina Crossroads was started as the first mystery and just needs borders
Hand me downs- nothing
nifty thrifty - nothing
Swing your partner - I have the fabric pulled
bargain basement is a top waiting for the quilting
shirtails - I have a few of the triangles set aside
bargello in plaid - I have been cutting the strips
perkiomen dreams and denim rails - I don't think I will make but who knows.
I will have to check on what I have done in string fling
In the spirit of strings, I like to treadle my string piecing on my singer treadle on Saturdays while my hubby and I watch TV. I am making narrow string strips for a quilt that uses these as inserts.
I still need more piano key strings for a border.
and I just made some slabs when I didn't like the strips for either of the other projects.
I have cleaned out some fabric, I knew I wouldn't use, which has helped me improve my numbers.
I hope to use more than added this year even if it is by fractions.
