{Post #1,182} Some Sewing Time

I still don't have my new camera.  Bear with me while I post on my tablet.

Finished the wedding quilt top this AM.  I will post a picture after it is quilted.  INCREDIBLY boring...checkerboard of 2 fabrics.  

The shirt strings abound.  Now that the wedding quilt is out of the way, I am going to focus on finishing up my Squares Surrounded.  Here is a long piece of paper-pieced border.  I need to measure to see just how much I need.  

I am also starting string blocks for a quilt made with 20 of these blocks.  I printed the templates on phone book pages.  Then lines are really easy to see.  I was pleased and surprised that I could use my old phone book for these.  The original pattern is called "Virginia Bound", but I am going to call it "Shirts Abound".  Very clever, huh?

Did I tell you that I signed up to take a class with Bonnie Hunter in September? And, we will be making the same quilt - Virginia Bound! I don't take very many classes, but I really wanted to take one with Bonnie. She has done so much to help quilters.
