"Strings project" update
I had a chance to get one more good sewing session in towards my Strings 2 quilt.
Here is the result:
I was able to get 18 more chain blocks made. This makes my total made to be 40 blocks. I need 56 total. Hopefully next time I get to work on this project I can finish up the last 16 blocks.
This is is my plans for Strings 2 quilt.
Because I will soon have all the blocks needed, my goal for next sewing session is threefold -
1. Finish the last 16 chain blocks using some reds and yellows and maybe oranges.
2. Cut the sashing pieces I'm going to need when I put it together
3. Cut the side setting triangles (and corner setting triangles).
Then, hopefully the NEXT time after that, i can put it together. So, as we Christians say, Lord willing, it will take 2 more sessions to finish this top.
And that's all for now! Have a great day!
