I have been following along with Bonnie Hunter’s mystery, (Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll on http://www.quiltville.com). For the first time I am caught up. So….
I did some quilting and finished that quilt on the frame I mentioned…was that a week ago? Then put another one on the frame and got it about half finished….then decided to pick up/organize/clean my sewing area.
And I came across the paper “cutoffs” from RRCB step 3. On that step, we pieced strings on a 8.5 x 8.5 piece of paper. I had purchased a child’s scribble pad at the dollar store–exactly 60 sheets, the number we needed. But the sheets were 9 x 12. I Used my 8.5 squares and had a piece 3.5 x 9 left over. Although I fully intended to throw them away, I think they would make some lovely smaller string-pieced blocks. I could get three 3 inch squares from each one. And it so happens I have lots of red strings…..
