(I'm still here!) This morning I got up when my husband's alarm went off at 4:00am and couldn't go back to sleep. Our house is pretty empty, but I've been itching to sew, so I set up a little area in our den and got to work...
I've been totally infatuated with string quilts for a little while now, and about month ago bought some freezer paper and tried to cut some 10" squares. I immediately realized I hate freezer paper and figured string quilts were not for me. After collecting some more pretty fabrics I decided to try again-but with muslin backing. I much prefer piecing with muslin! Only about 20 or so more blocks to go (unless I decide it's going to have a border). Also, I cleaned out my sewing machine pretty well, and it seems to have helped the tension, but I haven't thrown a quilt under it just yet. I'm still a little nervous.
I think string quilts are my current favorite. I'd really like to keep this one for myself, but I am already thinking of other color combinations. I'd love to do a really colorful one like this one!
