Scrap Attack Strings QAL - show and tell number 4

Last month I was lucky enough to win a gorgeous charm pack from
Thank you Chrissy.
This spurred me on to make a lot more of my string blocks.  I have completed 49 and sewn them all together.  I ran out of usable white fabric so decided this would be enough for me.  I am not sure what I will do with it next but have been fussy cutting the flowers that I have sitting on the flimsy.  I still have a few more to cut out.  I am thinking a nice floral border would look nice - perhaps a nice hawaiian print.

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project.
