I never knew,
That without you,
My heart would ache so badly
Know that I will keep you close to me,
No matter where I go or where I'll be.
It's a year now since you left us,
but you're present in my days,
"I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)" - E.E. Cummings

The excitement about trying a new technique (the one I mentioned on my last post)
made me take a look at my scrap boxes.
What do you think I found?….
What a bird brain…
How could I forget my string blocks???… I first showed them here…
After deciding which pattern I liked most
I made more blocks,
I took a break….
made more blocks, and…
Other projects took place,
the box with the blocks found a nice corner in the sewing room.
Why did they not scream??…I sure would have heard!
I started sewing the blocks.
It’s going to be a square quilt,
I have three more blocks to sew.
Sometimes a new idea helps you to finish an old project!
Wishing you a lovely sewing time!

Again and again,
scrap quilts always
get my attention,
the colors, the fabrics,
I saw this one in Australian Homespun No.128,
A nice way of using remnants to “make” your own pieces of fabric and
then cut them into parallelograms:
Interesting, isn’t it?
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
