It’s been a while

I’ve always liked maverick/free form pieced quilts but it’s been a while since I’ve done one … I guess my string quilts are a variation since I’ve modified a number of different traditional blocks and used irregular size strips and strings but I was reading Mereth’s blog and she linked to a book Cultural Fusion Quilts. I bought the kindle version and have really enjoyed looking at the quilts … I can definitely see myself making a few of them too. 

I love the cover quilt and this half square triangle one really appeals to me too!

    I love scrappy string quilts. Making one at the moment. I have also made something similar to your HST quilt, pairing string squares with bright solids. Effective and a great way to use some scraps.

    I miss your daily posts even when it’s not quilt related. Just a photo from the beach or of Chesty is a fun diversion for my day. Take care. You are one of my very favorite bloggers.

    Come back soon, Mary! It’s been so long, I’m getting worried about you (maybe others are too!)…. Enjoy reading whatever you post, quilty or not.
