String Challenge and More

I worked on my string blocks.  Last week I got them sewn.  This week was trim time.


We had some rain one day this week so in the afternoon we were stuck indoors.  I asked the kids what they wanted to to.  The gal in the pink shirt said she wanted to help me do some sewing.  She’s one of the girls that I made the Zuckerwatte quilt for.  (Post here if you missed that) I had just finished trimming the blocks while the kids were napping so I thought maybe they could help me de-paper the blocks.  The gal in the pink is an “old pro” at this…the others, they were new to it so my “old pro” taught them how.


As quick as a wink all the blocks were de-papered.

So now my tally on finished blocks looks like this….I need 48 and have 49.  Well that works for me!!  Now I can start sewing them together.

I did do some other sewing by that is all Double Wedding Quilt Along related and I’ll tell you all about that on Wednesday.

Right now I am doing the debate….do I finish this Daylilies quilt now or wait and take it to the retreat which is only about three weeks away.  Hmmm.  We’ll see what time allows for.

    I wish I was closer because I need to de paper some blocks and those kids like professionals, lol. It is one of the things I procrastinate about doing and any help would be appreciated.
