..............before collapsing into bed !
I've begun a new project.
After cutting strips for DAYS, I starting sewing strips onto these 10-inch foundation papers that I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. It is slow going, mainly because I am having trouble with the strips that are cut widthwise of the fabric, you know, from selvedge to selvedge. They want to lump up, stretching ahead of the presser foot, and a walking foot didn't seem to help.
MAJOR TIP: Cut your strips on the lengthwise grain ! Why haven't I read this anywhere lately while doing my string quilt research?
Anyway, it's a GOOD START. I'm dying to stitch together the 16 squares that I finished today, but I'm afraid that I will run out of these colors and have to add in a bunch of new fabrics, and then the next part of the quilt would be noticeably different. So, I really need to wait until I've pieced ALL the blocks, and THEN put them together. YUCK !
But, it's looking so good to me, that I really DO want to make it some kind of BED-SIZE.
So.............PATIENCE is called for. Praise the LORD, this is fun, though !
Well, I also mowed the yard today and cut the hubby's hair, so I'm done.
Night all !
