I can't believe where this month has gone. You can see what a lousy blogger I am...sorry.
I am currently up at our house in Sunriver (where we retreat in the summer) and I can tell you it's NOT summer anymore here. This was me early this morning:
I picked up 2 quilts from the machine quilter who does most all my quilts, Sandy Lachowski. The 2 quilts are related. The first one, Licorice Allsorts (which I've shown you) was made in July using 30s fabrics with a black background.
When I made this quilt, I made bonus triangles (Bonnie's method) and had lots of extra strips. So I made strings (another Bonnie idea...where would I be without Bonnie, seriously??), used the leftover bonus triangles and set them like this. I like how it turned out. And the cool thing is that the second quilt is made entirely from leftovers from the first!!
This is my first string quilt and I thoroughly enjoyed playing with it. I didn't quite come out as I'd planned but it's good enough.
I'll be up in Sunriver all through the holiday and hope to get lots of sewing done this weekend, during which, I promise, I'll post pictures and do some blogging.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Are you doing the mystery, btw???
