Here we are back at it fresh on another new week. I had a great weekend and I’ll write more about that at another time. For now, I need to tell you about my String Challenge progress.
I did have some progress.
Hubby and I went on a road trip up the booth in Harmony at the antique shop. I grabbed all the string blocks I had done and all the spider web blocks I had and ripped papers off the back along the way. I’m happy to report that I have
more string blocks complete for Daylilies…. I added 11 more blocks bringing it up to 29. I need 48 total so I’m over half done.
and I have spider string blocks done.
I also did this….I worked the pinwheels that will go around the center of the Daylilies quilt.
I thought I had them finish but alas. I am 9 short. UGH. Back to cutting them out but first I am going to rummage through the sewing to make sure I didn’t misplace a few blocks. That happened to me with another project.
My goal for next week is to finish the rest of the blocks.
Coming up the first weekend in August I’m going on a quilt retreat. I think I am going to bring my string quilts and see how far I can get on them. Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could really do a lot of them? I’m still well within striking distance of my goal to have all the quilts from Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book done before her new book comes out even if I don’t take them to the retreat but, it sure would be nice to have them done early….we’ll see. If I keep plugging away on Daylilies, I might it finished before then….hmm, maybe I should make that my goal.
