How I Spent My Day

I had a whole day to myself, well, after Cade left for school and Andy left for work and until Cade got home from school! :)

I really need to finish up the handquilting on my Halloween quilt. Sometimes, though, you just want to sew. I have been thinking about scrap quilts. I saw some beautiful string quilts on flickr. I found this AWESOME tutorial on Film in the Fridge. I grabbed some of my scraps and started cutting some strips. I had so much fun with these. I will make some more, not sure how many. I would love to make a large quilt out of these cute blocks, but when I think about handquilting through all those seams......hmmmm...maybe a baby quilt!

It felt really good to do some sewing today. I don't normally work on another project while I am handquilting. Since it takes a good while to handquilt I have to be very careful to finish what I start so projects don't back up!

For now I will hang these little blocks up on my design wall and dream about them while I handquilt.......until Friday Night Sew In:)

Hi Libby! These blocks are beautiful! I love the color/pattern combinations. I have a question - what is the usual size of a baby quilt?

They look great!!!! I love string blocks! I have a ton of string diamonds that I have not put together in a quilt yet!
