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.

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?
