These blocks will make a beautiful wall hanging.  If I remember right, that is your intent.  Your little pine branches look real.

At the rate you are going with this project and likely a desire to have it done by Christmas you should get there. It looks really pretty. Just a side note.........on the horse, you could design an applique mane instead of the embroidery and then make a few wavey lines when quilting this point it is no longer part of your quilt but you could use it for a pillow or some other small project.

It looks really good!  Glad practice is helping you go faster.  I hope practice will help you relax and enjoy the process.

Yours, Mine and Ours.....not the movie, strips and strings

Cathy and Dee both shared strips and strings with me, I was in the need of some mindless sewing to reduce stress level so pulled all the blue and light background  from what they sent and my box and created 37-12.5 blocks.  37 cause I miss counted.  Now which way do I assembly them?

Also saw a tumbling block quilt made from strings, so made a practice block. Did not make it right as strings should be running in the directions of black lines I drew on lights.  The small pile of blues scraps was all the blue strings that were left, had to pull a quarter yard of white from my yardage to have enough lights to finish strings blocks.  Thank you for sharing, Cathy and Dee.

Wow love your string projects!

Those are beautiful blocks!!

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. “
