I also added the link to the list on the sidebar of the HeartStrings blog so it will be easy to find for anyone looking for some inspiration. Feel free to send me links as you come across other great string quilts and I’ll add them.
I’m puttering around with half square triangles and Pinwheel blocks and one by one, more blocks are making their way onto my design wall. I’m really liking this quilt!
It’s nice to come home too. I miss Chesty when we’re gone and am always eager to get home and pick him up. Keith tossed him straight into the bathtub and he’s soft and cuddly!
I love being able to post photos and text directly from the iPhone while I’m gone, I enjoyed sharing my vacation photos and the beautiful sunsets almost made me wish I was living in Florida again. I have to remember we see some pretty spectacular sunsets here too — they’re just not outside my window every night although they used to be. One thing I miss about our apartment are the gorgeous sunsets over Loring Park. This first photo is from the deck we had there.
There are some spectacular sunsets on the Mississippi River too, I just have to be out walking to catch them. This was a photo from last summer taken from the Stone Arch Bridge.
I’ve started working my way through all my email, I read it on the iPhone while I was gone but didn’t sort or respond to much of it. I’m making my list of all the links people sent for string quilts and once I’m done, I’ll draw a name from those that submitted them for a prize.
If you had questions for me while I was gone, I’ll try to answer them if I have an email address to respond to….so many people still don’t have their email addresses enabled in their profiles.
I’m going to try and get some piecing done this week but I head out again on Friday for another long trip – a High School reunion dinner and a visit to Mom in Virginia and to Maryland from there for my brother’s wedding. It’s a busy summer so far.

my Stars and Pinwheels waiting on my design wall.
