Bonnie was right. She's been going easy on us up until this week. And, this week, she's given us quite the challange. First, she said dig deep. And, what did I find when I went there?
Some really ugly fabric. That bug fabric from the bottom is the very first fat quarter I ever bought and it's never been cut. The newsprint is left from a pair of lounge pants I made Rob about 9 years ago. The rest are from here and there.
And, I had a lot of really pretty long strips left from my quilt making. Tons of them. From 1" to 2" wide. And, a whole bag of neutral hst's.
And, this is what I've ended up with so far. they're pretty slow. I've spent a lot of time on just these 15. I might be able to get 5 more out this weekend, but I'm betting I won't finish this clue by week's end.
So, this is my first string piecing. Never done it before. I've saved strings forever and have a huge tub of them, saved. And, thanks to Bonnie, now I'm finding a use...oh, and a use for last year's phone book. Good thing they delivered new ones this week.
I also got a quilt bound and soon as the sleeve is on and it's washed, I'll post a pic of that. Take care and I hope you're having a wonderful winter weekend.
