I'm getting back in to the swing of things here at home since the Jane Stickle retreat last weekend. I haven't touched my sewing machine since I've been home but I do have something to show.
My choice for strings has been to make log cabin blocks. For a change, I've been sewing string blocks.
I used telephone book paper for backing. Never again! Next time I'll use thin fabric, too much time is wasted in removing the paper. And Yes! I did use a small stitch.
At the retreat I sewed some of the blocks together. I had seen a quilt made with string stars somewhere online. I like the way the quilt looked so that's what I decided to make.
The stars are 28" unfinished. I've completed 2 stars so far, I need to make 4 more.
I like how these are turning out.
