Quilting along...

 Good morning, everyone.  I am working on Lori at Humble Quilts quilt along.  I made some blocks...then started playing with settings.  I think Lori as well as anyone knows that I just love to play with blocks and different settings and just really enjoy designing on the fly.  Let the winds carry me where they may!  (Or the overhead fan...)  Anyway, this is what I came up with for my blocks.  Not like Lori's quilt but the same blocks.  I know she won't mind, at least I hope not!!  And I got to use up some strings, which is a good thing all the way around.
The leftover piece of border became a little candle mat.  Both pieces still need quilting, which I just love to do. Thank you, Lori, for another super fun quilt along!!




I am unsure of what to do next.  I have so many plans, it is kind of overwhelming.  Today I will clean house and just think of what in the world should really be next...



Hope you all have a great Monday!!!

Julie

Lori will definitely appreciate your creativity, and the rest of us will just shake our heads at the speed with which you're done.
I'm still looking at my piles of blue, tan, and gold fabrics, ready to cut. And I've just printed the new month's patterns for 3 BOM I want to do.
Thanks to Quilter Kathy above who perfectly expressed my sentiments -->
So many plans... so many quilts... so little time.

What a great idea for the left over border!

Very nice! And of course I do not mind!! I hope to get a little sewing done today too. Was busy getting a tattoo! :)

Oh yeah, I love the blues and the block setting/placement. It looks great!

I love the border you chose, seems to make the blocks really shine. Enjoy contemplating the next move!

Strings are your signature touch.
