Those charity quilts are still taking up most of my time. I did manage to get the string blocks that my childcare kiddos were helping me de-paper trimmed to size and cut.
Now all the cream ones are finished and believe it or not, I started sewing the brown blocks. Check them out…
It’s been so fun to sew on these. A good portion of the fabric I am using for these came from a garage sale. I bought a box of mostly brown calico prints and a few cream prints for $1. The fabric was all calico prints from the 70’s and 80’s. I added some of my own brown prints and I’m loving the blocks.
These are for my Pfeffernuse quilt.
When I started working on UFOs back at the beginning of the summer this one was cut out and nothing more.
Then I was laid up with my foot I was able to get the hour glass blocks done….now it’s time for the rest of the string blocks. I love sewing string blocks.
I have to admit when Bonnie Hunter said her next book, after this most recent one, was going to be a string book. I was WAY happy. Strings are great to use up fabric I no longer love.
You can find me back here on Wednesday. My hope is to get the brown string blocks done but I really don’t think that will happen. I have a Christmas present quilt to start working on and I still have more charity quilts to finish quilting. So many quilts, so little time!! I’m sure you can all relate.
