Hello everyone!

Just checking in before I get back to my sewing machine!

Still working on my Gerry inspired project which also qualifies as a string project. I am really, really trying to get it done by the end of the week. Each of the 9 blocks are made of 4 subunits and if I'm not tired, it takes me about 30 minutes to piece each subunit. Of course, this involves some agonizing over string color placement. I have only 2 more blocks or 8 subunits or 4+ hours of piecing to go before I start on the also pieced border! There is also one block I may redo or I may leave it in as "humility block". Stop me before I ever try to make something like this again, please.

This afternoon, I'm going to my quilt guild meeting so I'll probably not get as much piecing done as I'd like. Better go get started again.

The sun is shining here after an inch and a half of rain yesterday. Its a great day! Hope you have one too!


  1. You're sounding a little stressed there friend. Take a breath, relax and remember your time commitments are good intentions - not contractually bound. ;)

  2. Your Gerry quilt sound like a lot of work and I am dying to see it!

  3. OMG, Mayleen, what have you gone and done????

    Nine blocks each with 4 sub-units, is that what I heard? How big is this project going to get???? the size of Kansas????


  4. Tension is building. My O my what can you be working on.
