straight lines.

I'm sewing LOTS of straight lines.
This way.......
then......
That way.
Gets kind of boring. ;/

I will say I'm driving OVER some
very. pretty. fabric!!!
Lots of pretty blocks sent from all over the world
to make these quilts for Japan!
Thank you.

But.....
I'm so tempted to play....
These string blocks are sitting on the floor
calling my name
THE. WHOLE. TIME!!!
Their voices are pretty loud too!!!!

"Come and make some more of US
so WE can be a QUILT too!!!!!"

  6. How great that you doing the quilting yourself on the quilts for Japan. A big job! And many thanks to you for all your work on this.

    Your string blocks are awesome all together!! I may have to try that technique . . . I think I've figured out how you made those.

  7. I find I have to break that boring straight line quilting up with a little play - quilt so many rows, play a little, quilt so many, play a little..........

  9. I know what you mean when you say the blocks are calling you! We crafters have so much to do and so little time to do it! Can't wait to see what you do with them though.
