Three things to be happy about:
(1) fresh batteries
(2) trolley tours
(3) learning through You tube
Isn't that a messy sewing space?
It's how I roll, it simply means I'm busy with my nose to the needle, my foot to the pedal!
I'm still working away on my string blocks; when I stopped to cut some of them out, I saw that I have more than enough of the dark blocks since each star only needs 4...
I have fewer of the all light and the light/dark mixture though.
So those are the ones I'll work on til I have enough for whatever size quilt I want to make!
Actually the GO die works really well for cutting these blocks - it's accurate and quick. I can only do one at a time but it's still quicker than cutting with a ruler.
And as a bonus, I thought of a way to use more of that 6-1/2" size - slice a block across at the diagonal and you have an instant roof!
My goal here is to move as many of those strings and strips, as quickly as I can, and this will do it for me.
Meanwhile, I'll keep my nose to the needle in my messy work area til I know it's enough ...
Sew forth and sew on til later!
