These blocks are a continuation of my project from last year...I have lots more cut out, so I intend to sew them all up. I like them, and they are four inch finished.
I made a springtime purse!! Just a small fun thing. I have friends who spend tons of money on purses, and to each her own, but I love my little handmade purses.
Just a start on the bowl fillers...I have really no idea what I am doing here, and just made a heart and stuffed it. Ha ha! I will experiment with this idea...and peek on Pinterest.
Thank you, Karen, for the pin cushion above! I just need to whip the seam closed. I appreciate you!
The string quilt that I have been quilting on is unique to me in several respects. I have no batting in the quilt, since it is backed with flannels, and the blocks have a foundation of fabric, so that part is unique. Also, the backing is folded around to the front to form a facing, not a proper binding. I remember my momma doing this, and leaving about a inch facing on the front!! So I guess this quilt is an experiment to me....and on I go! It is definitely a bit lighter without the batting.
One thing I would like to ask, should I expect pilling of the flannel, with washing and wear? What is your experience with working with flannel?
