Quiet Rainy Day

The rain started at bedtime and kept up well into the morning.  Not a great day outside but good for indoor pursuits.  I finished meander quilting a string quilt.  I have probably discovered why it is a good idea to use muslin foundation rather than paper that is torn out.  The quilt has bias edges and seemed to grow as I worked.   Now I am trying to decide whether to turn over the backing for the binding or to cut and sew binding on.  Won't have to decide about that until Sunday afternoon.  I'll post a picture after it is done.  

I also cut foundations for some more string blocks.  These are headed to Heartstrings.  They really don't take very long unless you use little strings.  Today I was working with 2, 2.5 and 3" strings.  So they were going fast until I had to run a couple of errands. 

Tomorrow it is off to NJ to watch Kevin and Brian compete in a triathlon.  Too bad the weather isn't going to be fabulous.  Happy quilting! Bonnie

  1. Bonnie, Thanks for participating in our HeartStrings Block Party - as soon as I get off the computer, I'm heading upstairs to make some more blocks too.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
