You did a beautiful j on your string blocks and, although I like both, I do favor the bottom one.  No reason--just like it better.  I'm impressed you had such a small pile of leftover strings.  Mine tend to multiply.

Thanks you, I have found that when I make the large 12.5inch blocks the strings don’t seem to multiply, probably cause at times I have to sew pieces together to have a strip long enough.

Today I’m doing binding, binding, and more binding. Pita has been a good student with the quilt computer and is cranking through my stack of tops whilst he practices. People have asked me how I like my new machine and the answer has to be, “I don’t know. I haven’t gotten to use it yet. “

Gorgeous work!! I think I like the diamonds better layout wise.

I really like that, but of course I would -- it's blue!

I'm always been fond of the barn raising setting for log cabin blocks.  Your "circle" setting reminded me that I have a 3" log cabin project (in shades of blue) in the works that I haven't pulled out in a while.  A friend challenged me to make it big enough to fit the top of a queen sized bed.  I'm a ways from that ...

Anyway, I really like YOUR blue log cabins!

I guess I missed what Pita is doing with quilts and computers?

Long ago, in the days when we were the About forum (before we became Delphi) there was a couple named Bunny and Joe Filer who had a similar arrangement.  Bunny made the tops and Joe did the quilting.

I don't know which of them did the binding.

For some reason they could not make the transition to Delphi.

I bought a new machine. He wanted to add quilt path. I agreed as long as I never had to do it. I’m not fond of actually doing pantos computer or not. I prefer doing custom work and graffiti style stuff. 
So he has spent the last couple of weeks learning the computer and practicing. 
 

I told him my tops are the best practice pieces ever since you will encounter ALL the problems.  I got home from work one day and he said, “Hey, that one I did today was great. It was square and flat and no open seams. See? You can do good stuff!”  I went and looked at the quilt and had to tell him….yeah, that was Ellen’s. 
 

I was more amused than him. In my defense, these tops of mine are several years old. I have gotten a *little* better.

I prefer quilting over piecing, but I haven’t convinced him to do that part yet. I do the binding because I like that part
