Oh GOODNESS, this is probably my most neglected UFO – I think I am even short a few blocks, but I wasn’t sure how to set them, I got busy with other things, lost my love ---
And put them in TIME OUT!
There are so many ways to set a quilt, but just putting these together block to block was too similar to another orange sampler quilt I’ve got.
Setting them on point with alternate blocks? No, I’ve done that to a quilt, and that really leaves wide open space that looks best with really fussy quilting. I wanted something different than that.
But simple sashings and 9 patches looked pretty predictable too….and what to choose for sashing?
And then it hit me.
Or I tripped over it….
Thank you Davidson County for another string-piecing-foundation book!!
This was waiting for me at the end of my driveway yesterday and I couldn’t help but notice that the smaller page size just might be perfect for…
and I happen to have a whole giant tub of….
And how about we do something really folksy for the cornerstones like:
Yeah, Baby! Now this feels like a Bonnie Quilt!
String sashings and square in a square cornerstones!
But you know how it goes…..I have a MYSTERY to sew. I already have ONE crumb strip project going. Just HOW do I think I’ll find the time to work on these puppies? ((It’s hard to tell in the photo, but those cornerstones have solid black triangles. I like how they look!))
Too many quilts, too little time…..but what a way to go!
Devoted to Scraps” from me….I have tracking numbers PROMISING they will arrive on my doorstep on Friday, so they can go out to you on Saturday so I can go to Oregon on Sunday –this is my crazy life!
I know we sold more than the first order so while in Texas I placed a second order because those moved so fast. They should arrive while I am in Oregon, and I will mail those out upon my return ---thank you for your understanding. My supplier was OUT, and I had to go to another distributor and get them drop shipped. They are on their way.
