Stringus Interruptus

I was ardently working on the borders for my string pieced top when a nasty chest cold knocked me down for the count. I think I'm about 3/4 done.


We finally received the shipment of fabric for March's Strip Club. I spent the day piecing the sample top. Here's a picture of the blocks and sashing on the design wall - the top is completely finished now including borders, but Russ borrowed my camera tonight and took it with him to his gig at Billy Bob's. I'll try to get a shot of the whole thing tomorrow.


In case you haven't noticed, I am now a member of the Maverick Quilters blog ring. Thanks to all who have made me feel welcome. If you've got a minute or two, check out the other Maverick bloggers - it's lots of fun!

I think it's time to take my NyQuil and go to bed....

Love the two quilts in progress! I am a big fan of string quilts, and the string panels you have going are great! I hope that nasty chest cold is on it's way out and you are on the mend by now!

Love the blocks. Don'tcha just hate it when life gets in the way of quilting? That's just not right! Sure hope you're on the mend and back to doing what you love!
