I think this quilt to was pieced in 2008 (maybe earlier). I finally have a reason to quilt and bind it. I will disclose that later.

Here is a huge block (24" square) that is one of seven to finish a quilt called "Round and Round". I am using all shirt prints for the friendship stars and natural muslin for the background.
I have a lot of sewing and painting to do in the immediate future, so this will take a back seat. I need to have it finished by January 2015. Getting a head start, and also curious as to how it would look with my choice of fabrics.

These are some shirt crumb blocks I made while piecing some more String Squares blocks. I finished 16 more of the SS blocks!
I am making these crumb blocks into a table runner for my cousin once removed. We have just recently reconnected after about 40 years on Facebook. Her posts encourage me. She has such a strong sense of family. I am mailing it to her as a surprise.

This is the first row of a string shirt quilt I'm calling String Squares. I was inspired by my b-friend Julie.
The white on the right end is the sun coming through the window.

This is flying along since I had all the HSTs sewn together as well as the star block centers already finished. It has not been ironed, but here it is so far.

This is the beginning of my "Glory Bound" quilt. The pattern is by Red Crinoline Quilts. It will be 64" wide when sewn together. There are large pieces sewn together in the picture, but the whole thing is in chunks...not completely pieced yet.
