how we roll

As I was going outside to photo roll roll, I noticed the mandevella was really blooming.


Assembly of the rows has begun for roll roll cotton boll. I am so glad that there are not many seams to match, but it is always a challenge to get the direction on the corner setting triangle correct.


I am loving it already. But, here is the thing, I can not dredge up a single memory of sewing the blocks together. With all the triangles, there should be some memory. But, no. funny. Maybe, I did it in my sleep.



I am joining Jo's string challenge. My challenge is to finish all the Quiltville mystery quilts before the next one comes out in November. This time it is also a string quilt too.

  1. I love seeing string quilts but have never made one. Hmmm.. I really like how the dark plays against the light in your quilt. It is SO pretty!

  4. Nice progress on Roll, Roll. I make (or start) Bonnie's mysteries every once in a while. I know I've finished one but I have parts made of a couple of more of them. One day... Yours looks great.

  9. It's going to be a lovely quilt. Is it possible you did all those little bitty HSTs around the blocks as leaders and enders? Maybe that's why you don't remember them.
