It Was a Sew-Sew Sunday
I slept in this morning - it felt great! After calling off Audrey's violin lesson, I went to work in the sewing room. I finished the main body of my string quilt and set it with fabric from my stash. It needs an outer border. I'm thinking about string piecing the outer border - heaven knows I've got enough strings! A plain fabric border would be easier, but finding the right fabric in the closet could be a major challenge. Since the sewing room is in a big mess right now, I might as well continue on with the string piecing.
While piecing the blocks, of course I needed a leader/ender. So I made some "crumb" blocks as seen on Finn's blog. WOW - were these fun to make. I can see a new addiction on the horizon. Like I need a new addiction... I can see slicing up orphan blocks and making something new out of them. Oh - the possiblities!
If you decide to make your own crumb blocks, remember that you will have bias edges once you trim them down. I would suggest a good shot of Magic Sizing before trimming.
Yep. It was a good day to stay home. And I even got me a dose of Bon Jovi before the Daytona 500. Yum....
