Snow's almost gone, but the weather is sure fickle. Sun is out right now, but the wind is blowing rather hard. I am just working on an embroidery project at the moment and haven't been able to even sit on the sewing machine to do some piecing. I'm looking forward to having my left shoulder fully functional again.
Take care and hope for Spring to really stay around.
O I see you love bags and old machines too. Hope your Bonnie quilts does came out pretty. My second one with this year mystery came out more fun using all the fish left over from other quilts. Still have to take pictures and quilt it.
My two string quilts were big lap size. One I gave as a wedding gift, she got to pick from my pile of quilts and the string quilt was her choice. Which was quilted in orange, her husband favorite color. I do Bonnie Hunter quilts, they are all very heavy queen size, from all the small pieces. She also did have quilt with strings, ocean Bay about four years ago as the mystery. The blocks just all the same, like shades of white strips for the triangles, then shades of red. Not fast for me. I have yet to string all the whites.
Hi Cheryl - thanks for the nice welcome message. Yes, I did make the quilt you mentioned. You can see a better photo of it on my profile page photos. I made it for my husband - it is hand appliquéd and hand quilted. Yes, I'm crazy but I love the handwork. I am warming up to machine quilting though after 20 years of so of dislike. I love all the wonderful thread colors available. And the quilts get done MUCH faster!
have the blocks done.. start the borders tomorrow have changed the game plan instead of a quilt I am making a 6 block table topper and 4 place mats with 2 hot pad I will get to use them more then a quilt I can even take them to the clubhouse to decorate how fun
So glad to find my way back I choose the neutral plait whit yellow being the zinger I'm about half done with the fist lesson how fun I have been quilting for 10 year and never have done a project like this before later
