Strippy Friday



Yippee! I finally finished some Heartstrings blocks! The bad news - you can't tell that anything has been used from the bag of strips I started out with this afternoon. Do they multiply while you are sewing or when you are trimmming the blocks? I used mostly strips I had cut for my Mumbo Gumbo challenge with yellows for the other side and purple down the middle. Not sure how I will set the blocks or how many I will make. There's lots of strips still to use.


Yesterday I worked getting our local quilt show ready for the 4:00 opening. If you are near mid Michigan, stop over to Valley Plaza in Midland and check out the quilts. There are about a dozen or so vendors as well as a silent auction, raffle quilt and small quilt auction tomorrow afternoon. The link has all of the information you may need.

Can't wait to see how you put your strips together! Wish I was going to be in your area to attend the show but . . not gonna happen. Y'all have fun!!!

I just can't get enough of strips and strings - will be happy to see what develops.

Today, at work, I cut up old telephone book pages to size -- about 5 1/2 x 9, to make foundations for more string-things ...

Thanks for the photo, and incentives to just keep stringling along.

I swear strips, strings and crumbs all breed in the dark of night in the sewing room when we are asleep. The more strings and strips I pull from my box the fuller it gets!!!!
