It seems that Bloggerland has been bitten by the String Piecing bug! How fun! I have a string UFO on my list for this coming summer - String Tulips. In about 1990 I made up 20 of these tulips - all from bits and pieces of fabrics given to me by my family. Last summer I actually pulled them out to admire. Mmmm - got to love some of that older fabric, LOL! And since I didn't have any other fabric - I put it all together and somehow - the end result works. String quilts are so fun in that regard.
I am going to sew these right side down onto very thin interfacing, clip the curves, slit the interfacing and turn right side out, and then sew with a machine blanket stitch using black thread onto a background fabric. At least - that is my plan. Got to get the interfacing. And background, sashing and cornerstone fabrics. I think each block is about 11", but I can't remember exactly right now.
These blocks are in Canada so I won't be able to work on them anytime soon...
I think this will be a fun quilt when finished!
P.S. - I started a NEW blog - it is www.starfishysphotojournal.blogspot.com - take a peek!
