What would you do if you suddenly found yourself alone for the day?
Sew, of course!
I finished piecing the Patriotic Warm Wishes quilt. Thanks for the suggestion of the small white inner border. I like how it makes the pieced portion appear to *float*.
I quilted it using the Stars and Loops panto from LEQ.
Members of the HeartStrings group (blog and website) were meeting in Nebraska today for a sew-in. I read about it on Lori's blog. So I decided to sew together a few string blocks.
I had cut the foundations and center strips last September, but never did get around to sewing it together. This is how my pile started.
This is after.
No wonder so many people love to make these string blocks! I chained pieced 6 blocks at a time and was done this afternoon. I just made a rough cut to even the edges out. The precision cut to 9.5 inches will wait until I can focus a little better. :)
