Winter quilt flimsy

12.11.2013

I have the flimsy done.  =)  I may have been quiet, but I am always busy. Now to get it quilted before winter is over. *wink*


Yesterday, I got out my two containers of strings and threw a couple of blocks together. As I have mentioned before, scrappy is hard for me, however, once I got started, I couldn't stop! I sorted out the lower volume fabrics I had, cut a bit into my yardage and fat quarters for more variety and I am well pleased with how this project is coming along. I am really excited to see how it will look after I get the blocks sewn together.


Quilting truly is my therapy. When life is hard, I can lose myself in a project. It helps to keep the fear and sadness at bay. It is a true blessing to me. 

I hope you are all doing well.....

  2. Oh I love the fabrics and colors!! And your string blocks are gorgeous. I agree, quilting is therapy. I have been missing my machine, it's been in the shop for almost two weeks and I'm having withdrawals. The hum of the needle is so relaxing!
