Can you believe it’s been about 3 weeks since our last Quilt-Cam?
Holy cow, what a wild journey I’ve been on ---
Since the last Quilt-Cam I had my friend Tonya over, deboning shirts while we were without power for 2 days ---
I’ve been in Kentucky, and Tennessee ---and twice to the cabin on either end of that journey ---
I’ve finished the top for Wonky Wishes, but it still lacks a backing.
I’m STILL Binding on my Split 9-Patch Leader & Ender Challenge ----
And when I was thinking of what to do for Quilt-Cam tonight….this quilt kept taunting me.
I showed it to Tonya while she was here.
“It’s not done.” She said.
“I KNOW it’s not done!” I said.
I’ve pondered about it, and while putting away the leavings of all the shirts she cut apart while here…I found a left over border length of 4.5” string blocks.
Would it? Could it?
If I separate the quilt body with a 1” narrow red solid inner border..I think it just might!
The border length is almost as long as one long quilt side!
I’m already 1/4 the way there!
More String Block Sewing!
I’m sewing on my 1957 pink Atlas machine tonight. She hasn’t had a workout in a while and with all the trees blooming pink outside, I’m in a pink mood. I’ve cut myself some 4.5” foundations and am stringing away from my bottomless bucket of recycled shirt strings and strips --
