String Challenge

I didn’t have much time for sewing but I had some.  If you’re been following along you know that I’ve been doing strings on the treadle for Daylilies.  Being I only had two-ish hours to sew I decided to head up to the sewing room and pull Tulip Fields.  With the String Challenge I have three quilts left to completely from the book…Pineapple Crazy needs to be quilted.  Daylilies needs the string blocks and Tulip Fields is cut out but that’s it.

Here’s how I last left it….


I’m so happy with myself that I left a good note inside.


Only problem…ugh.  I couldn’t find the book with the pattern.  I don’t know where I put it.  I didn’t want to waste all my time looking for it.  Well I remembered that some triangles had to go one direction and the other triangles the other direction…so I went on the internet, typed in “Tulip Fields Bonnie Hunter” then went to images and I saw this…It’s a picture I took from my very own book.  It’s a picture that I probably had on the blog at one point….kind of silly.  I guess I did find my book in a way..just not the hard copy form in my hand that I wish I had.

No time to fret…I just started sewing after I looked at the quilt long enough.

I love my seam guide...It’s from Lori Holt.  I didn’t know if I’d like it or not but I sure do.

Before long I had a pretty big pile.  I’m not done yet but hopefully another session like this and I will be.  Then onto ironing.

I don’t know what I’ll be working on next weekend. I am looking forward to a couple extra days off over the 4th of July. I hope to make one a real sewing day!  In the meantime, I think I’m going to start looking for my book!  Once I get onto another step I’m sure going to wish I had it.

  1. Your making progress and anytime spent stitching is well spent. I cant believe how close you are to having all those quilts done.
