After playing around with layouts yesterday I decided that another row of blocks would make a better sized cuddle quilt and wondered if I had enough shabby strings to make 8 more.
I dug out my photo box (does that not shout pretty fabrics inside!) which is stuffed to the top. Um... yes. Tucker was quick to arrive because this box has not been opened for at least 3 years. After a thorough check he agrees that 8 more blocks will not be a problem. Then I had to set aside the camera because he was determined to sit on the box! I wonder if he thinks he is still kitten sized? Kind of like how I am startled by my 51 year old self in the mirror occasionally...
Here are a few of the blocks laid out. String blocks + my favorite shabby fabrics = HAPPINESS!
I did an HGTV forum swap for bright bricks and B&W prints for the 4 patches last month. I've decided it's too busy and will be using a black solid and a white solid instead after seeing one like that on the forum. Good thing I only did one!
