Left Over Quilt #3
I have been working hard lately. I took the remaining leftover blocks and cut them in quarters and then inserted a strip inbetween the four quarters and then sewed them all together. I have also been handquilting on Spring Morning and knitting a cabled scarf for my nephew to wear in Alberta next winter. I am also working on green string blocks. I found that I dont have hardly any light or medium greens left. Mostly darks.
My plan of using up all my scraps is continuing. After the greens there are the peaches/rusts/oranges and purples and reds and blacks. So I am about halfway using up my scraps to make string quilts. The green one I am making now is being sewn on rectangular phone book pages so I will end up with a diamond effect. What fun!!
