The Rainbow HeartStrings blocks have been assembled. As you know I’m sure, these two string tops didn’t even make a dent in the string bins. I’m kind of missing having that nook in Tampa where I was able to leave the strings out and just keep sewing blocks in between other projects … but I can’t stand having the string mess out all the time here at Big Canoe because it’s right in the middle of the floor!
For now, the strings have been cleaned up and hopefully I’ll get back to them sometime next month.
I also sewed the binding on the lantern quilt and will hand stitch it down tonight.
I pick a color and sew strings from one color. Controls the mess a little.
Maybe get a really deep pretty basket with a narrow top and put the strings in it. Of course, they wouldn’t be in separate colors. This is very pretty, I really like it.
Looks like another really pretty quilt in the making, Mary!
Strings are indeed messy but so much fun! I’ve recently dug through my large basket of strings looking for neutrals. Once those were found, getting the piles of strings back in the basket was tough! It’s like they expanded because they hit the air! Ha! Love your quilt!
Such a beauty! The black lattice was a wonderful choice!
