See? Flowers are blooming in their own little patch of sunshine. This is another of the "Four plus One" patterns. Five FQ and you are set. It even finishes the little quilt with backing and binding. I don't applique much- I'm really bad at it, but I have been practicing some on my newer sewing machine and while I cannot imagine wanting to make an entire applique quilt, one block is rather fun. I used the same color thread on the whole block- a funky color that Thread Art sent to me in place of the back ordered cream. It's a nice golden color and matches the background fabric perfectly. I'm not to picky about thread- as long as it works.
Now ain't that a coincidence?
Here I am using an old phone book to make a string quilt and when I flipped a block over and look! Recycle, indeed. My blocks are shaping up to 7". I am really running to the bottom of the bag this time. I am determined to use every little morsel of string fabric! I'm not sure how I'll set them - I like them all alone. I need to check out Bonnie's amazing quiltville site. She always has loads of ideas.
