So these are my squares randomly laid out. I really like them. These are 4" right now.
I really like the combination of colors and fabrics, some of which I wouldn't have otherwise bought in a million years. I've started piecing some bits together and making a few string blocks. I threw in some solids to make the fabric last longer. The solids seem too dark to me, but I guess this is all part of the experience of making a string quilt. Making do with what you have. The flannels are making sure I'm imprecise.
Lily in the way, glaring at me because I disturbed her nap.
It's been great getting all the comments and emails for the fingers-crossed reprint of Gwen's book. Keep 'em coming. Have you told all your friends yet?
By the way, I'm not responding to the emails, so no worries if you haven't heard back from me. I am getting them though, your vote is being counted.
