Three things to be happy about:
(1) corny movies that make you laugh
(2) bare feet on a tile floor
(3) fresh spinach
Today is my mom's birthday, she passed away 20 years ago - 20 years!! If she were still alive, today she would be 102 years old. Wow!
on this post.
Since I finished piecing the ID square dance quilt - I'm calling it "Idaho Star Dance" - I thought I'd pick up the Scrap Crystals project that I gently pushed aside over a year ago. I wanted to do a slightly different treatment for the sashings but I didn't have any bright ideas.
After watching Bonnie Hunter piece together neutral strings on last week's Quilt Cam the light bulb came on!
I carried an old Verizon phone book and a bag of blue strips and strings to the bee meeting last Saturday. I had a grand ole time piecing string after string, watching the pile grow...
Didn't take long to fill up more than a half dozen pages!
Cut into 3-1/2" strips and de-papered - looking good!
I pieced some long strips, enough to do a couple test blocks...
I like what I'm seeing so far!
After sewing these together I see that I can add some green into the mix.
I think I'm gonna like this version of Scrap Crystals!
Have a great Wednesday, sew forth and sew on til later!
