I'm not done playing with scraps! I will be taking a workshop in April for a spool quilt. The supply list calls for (48) 4.5" squares for the "thread" on the spools. Why use a plain square when you can string piece one?!
Here's a peek at my workstation at the kitchen table.
I have been piecing on the Featherweight almost exclusively. She's so cute and purrs like a kitten! I like to use painter's masking paper from the hardware store for string piecing foundations. This roll is about 9" wide, so it is easy to cut 4.5" squares.
I'm still using the Wild & Goosey units as leaders/enders. It's a good plan, but I do need to pay attention to my warm/cool color plan, or there will be ripping. The top 2 units are correct; the bottom 2 are not. (The cool geese are supposed to have warm side triangles and vice versa.)
I've always wanted one of these tray table ironing boards. I finally picked up a $9 table at Walmart a few days ago. I already had some Insul-brite batting. This Amy Butler print is so pretty and looks perfect in the kitchen. Sometimes, a 15 minute project can make me so happy!
These strip blocks stitch up so quickly. I was able to complete all 48 on Valentine's Day. I had to make one spool of rainbow variegated thread!
Now I need to clean up this mess! I'll cut down the bigger pieces into useful sizes before stuffing the rest back into the giant tote bag it came out of. That should keep me busy through another snow day.
