Strings and Things

I got back into the swing of things this Sunday, with a long overdue sewing day with my pal, Toni.  Toni finished up an ancient UFO, a baby quilt top…and I made a few Bee Blocks.

This one is for Susan, for the Fresh Modern Bee that, due to some things going on in my life, I had to drop out of early, but promised her I’d finish up her block:

Then I made these fun string blocks for Terri, for the One Block Over Bee:

Using a paper foundation, these blocks go together FAST and EASY:

Now, obligations fulfilled, I am on to sewing bags, starting with a few coin purses:

It’s great to be creating again…

  1. Such a great feeling to get caught up with the quilting bees, isn't it?! Love the blocks you made! Happy to see you creating again, especially such cute looking projects!

  2. I have made many string blocks, and sure enjoy using up my strips and uglies that way. Here's a tip for you… do your stringing on telephone book pages. They're cheap and abundant!

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
