Another string quilt. These are my go-to, relaxing, mindless quilts. Cut up a bunch of strips in varying widths, sew them diagonally onto Missouri Star Quilt Company's neat 10" papers, trim and that's it. Beyond mindless. The best part is that you get to make choices of which fabrics to put next to each other. My kind of patchwork.
The blocks are 10" square, and they are easy peasy to assemble. When Miss R visited us for her week, she picked out the fabrics to go with her newly painted bedroom. The colors on my monitor are pretty accurate.
So now I need to sew them together, then the strips, and then I'll have a pretty flimsy. It's got to wait in the queue, because I have 3 other flimsies spoken for.
So what to do next? I'm thinking another log cabin but this one with 2" strips and not curved. I found tons of fabric that's calling me. Hmmmm.
So, a question for you quilters out there: What do you do with your quilts when you have too many of them. I am making for family and friends, so I'm not at that point yet, but it's coming. I'm thinking donations to charities.
