Bonus Sewing Day!!

The last string quilt I made found in my recent book STRIP QUILT SECRETS.

I planned to quilt another customer quilt on my longarm today but I didn't have the right color thread. (Luckily I can pick it up at the shop tomorrow!) So I have 6 hours until Pilates this evening and you know what? I'm going to sew my heart out.

Just for fun!

I am joining Lori's stringalong that started a looooong time ago. But I've had so much fun watching.

And I'm going to put some of these strips to good use.

And I'm going to use this awesome foundation paper. It has 100 sheets. I am going to cut it into 8 1/2'' squares. That means, I'll be able to set the blocks 10 by 10 and get a queen size quilt out of this one package.

I'm putting this book on the CD player and the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign on the door!

Enjoy every stitch! (I plan to!)
