When Lisa comes, she comes bearing gifts!
Are there any better gifts than the scrappy variety? WE DON’T THINK SO!
This all came about due to a conversation at lunch yesterday where we were talking about the “Big Stringy Mess” we were making in my basement studio, and who’s mess was bigger….
Always on for a challenge, Tonya said “I’ll take your ugly scraps!” And Lisa said..”I just might take you UP on that….”
And before I new it our quilting-twosome had become a piecing threesome when Lisa agreed to come join us for the afternoon.
She came downstairs hauling these THREE HUGE bags! Oh GOODNESS! Isn't this going to be a mass of fun!?
Tonya sewed and sewed and sewed with skinny strings on 3.5” foundations…..
Look how productive!
Between my strings, the strings that Tonya brought with her, and what Lisa dumped on my basement floor ---what was once considered ugly by some is now turning into a thing of much fun, and dare I say it..BEAUTY!? You know…if it’s still ugly, you just didn’t cut it SMALL enough!
My neutrals bin is stil over flowing…boy is there some funky stuff in here!
How many of you can spot the Packers fabric?
Here’s a close up:
Packers fans are “NEVER” Neutral, but this is playing in my neutral string sashings, baby!!
My stack as it grew.
I need 71 sashings. It’s going to take me a while. You may be seeing more photos of neutral string piecing because this is where I am and what I am working on, and it’s going to look like a lot of the same thing after the same thing –But I am motivated and working going to get it done
We are back in the studio sewing up more this morning!
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
