I just can't like string piecing. I try. But, I don't enjoy string piecing. While I am sewing these, I am planning how I will just take my tub and dump it into the trash.
I need to remember, I don't like a foundations this small -31/2 inch square. I don't like the triangle corners - I have to really hunt for pieces that are big enough. I don't like having one color I have to sort and find. I don't like the explosion of mess.
But, I enjoy the finished product. I enjoy using the leftover bits. Then, I remind myself, I do like crumb piecing aka mile a minute piecing, and all these leftovers will be used in that way. I have an entire list of crumb quilts, I still want to make on my inspiration board.
I saw this recently, and I liked it.... I found it here on kit & cat quilts with a tutorial. nice
I really like the tulip quilt that Jo is showing today and I can't imagine it with any other background than the strings, so, maybe, I still have one more in my future. Jo is trying to finish all the quilts in quiltville's string fling book before the new book is published. I am trying to finish all the mystery quilts as part of that challenge before the new mystery in November, so I am going to keep going.
