Orca Bay - 2/2/12

The Saga of the BLUE string blocks continues -

So - trim one up -

UP the LEFT side -

Turn it around -
Line up the 3-1/2” lines -

Got the ruler flipped - sorry -
But as A Left-Handed Quilter -
I learned REAL FAST -
How to read a ruler -
Upside down and backwards - ;))

Take the paper off -
All nice and neat -

Couple more to trim -

See the teddy bear?
Isn’t he cute?

I think that I’m going to leave the paper on this batch -
I have an idea -
Tell ya later -
If it works - ;))

Make another batch -
Sew some more -
More - and more -
And then when I finish the corners -

I toss them in the basket to be trimmed -

And start another batch -

Sometimes when I start with a longer strip -
On top (strip #2) -

I can sew it to the paper -
Cut off the end -

And use it as the bottom/first strip -
On the next one -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. I love to find little peekie boos in the string blocks. Kind of an I spy thing. Blocks look great!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
