Thank you, Jo, I appreciate your kind comment very much.

Today is Bonnie Hunter Workshop clean up day for me. (6-24) oh and the workshop was in Jun 2017.  I moved it to a door hanger so I would get motivated.  Worse I already HAD all the border blocks finished.  I need to organize myself in a better way apparently.  It's my project until I get it to the LA gal

The Free pattern is on Bonnie's blog, and called My Blue Heaven.

I like it Judy!

you can do so many things and designs with string blocks.

Oh, Judy, that is going to be so stunning!  Beautiful contrast between the darks and lights.  How big is each block?  Looks like you used some pretty skinny strings--that's a lot of work.

The blocks are pieced on 10" squares of flimsy foundation paper that I bought years ago from Missouri Star Quilt Company. (Advice to forum members; don't bother looking for those large tissue squares because MSQC doesn't sell them anymore.)

I used my AccuQuilt GO contraption to cut 1.5 inch strings from my little bins of leftover novelty fabrics and from my hoard of neutrals. This kind of sewing is what I call no-brainer sewing with an occasional thought as I recall a fun moment with a certain novelty fabric.  relaxed

When you visited my house (almost five years ago) you commented about the intricate quilts I had hanging on our walls. I might be working on another one pretty soon because I found a Karen K. Stone foundation piecing kit for sale on eBay yesterday and snatched it up. (That was a dumb luck find because she stopped selling her kits of papers years ago!)  It's a 40" square quilt  called "Vicious Circles" and is a variation on Double Wedding Ring.

Good grief!  That kit is going to be a doozy! Certain to keep you entertained and out of trouble.

Or perhaps quietly banging my head in a corner of my sewing room?
I loved working on Karen K. Stone's foundation pieced quilts years and years ago when I was younger and more ambitious ....

This one is small (only 40" square) and I can limit the palette unlike the biggies I made long ago.

Maybe you should have your dear hubby pad that corner so you won't hurt yourself.  I've never done anything that ambitious--guess I'm more the quick and easy kind of gal.  Pretty sure I have adult ADD.  If it's going to take too long, I give up easily.  I stand in awe of your patience to work on something like that.

If you give up on this project please don't throw it away like you did "Storm At Sea. The day you did that I was heartbroken and ordered the larger kit.  It is finished and hanging on my living room wall. I love it.

Stay safe.
