The last few nights I've been sewing up a storm of string blocks! Well, 80, to be exact! lol
They're not trimmed yet, but I'll do that when I have the block they butt up against finished.....just to make sure they fit just right.
I'm one of those quilters that when I have nothing but 2 inch blocks, 20 all sewed together......the end measurement always seems to have an additional 1/16th of an inch extra! And I've kindof learned by now that when a piece has to sit up next to it, I just wait to be sure BEFORE cutting it!
I've kindof tackled this Jubilee quilt in a Bonnie Hunter Mystery kindof way........cuz if I just sewed one block at a time......I think it would end up a placemat! So I've made the 80 string triangles, and I've made about 200 of the hst.......only 246 more of those to go! Woohoo! lol
I'm hoping to spend the next 3 days off making the rest of the hst, and then sewing them into their blocks, 156 of them! I think I'm gonna be putting on a Jane Austen Marathon to sew by......some Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and some Sense and Sensibility. That should put me in sewing bliss! :o)
Have a great week!
