I've been cutting 2 1/2 inch strips
and sewing them to strips of the reproduction 1930's fabric.
I've been playing with some of the half square triangles sewn from the flannel squares. The one at the top left is already trying to leave the design wall. LOL! Lots more of them need to be sewn before there will be enough for a quilt for our bed, which is where they are headed. But before I can do that, I will have to trim more of the squares I have to a uniform size and sew them together in pairs. Funny, flannel is so much thicker than regular quilting cotton that a pile of finished squares looks like a lot more than it really is. That's what I get for not planning more. I am so bad about just starting something and then figuring it out as I go. (Muddling, you know?)
I've cut a nice stack of muslin squares that will eventually become another string quilt.
I've been drinking a LOT of the "nectar of the South", iced tea.
And Chloe, my mentor and constant overseer says that I should just lighten up and take a nap. And to please stop disturbing her! Oh brother.
I guess really and truly it is just that it is SO hot here and I am so tired of being cooped up inside. I'm ready to get out and play in the dirt, but it's too hot and too dry. I am ready for fall. Seriously. Now.
Hope you're having more success with your doing right now!
