Never a Dull Moment

One of the things I love about playing with fabric is that there are so many possibilities. Endless combinations of colors, blocks and ways to combine them. It's virtually impossible to get bored. My list of possible projects  just grows and grows. I'd have to live several lifetimes to finish all that I want to do. My Great Aunt Lucy, who live to be 99 and quilted to the end gives me hope that I will at least put a dent in that list.

I've recently started a few more on the list.  A few house blocks, because houses are so fun to build, 

 and a new string project. I'm using dryer sheets as a foundation.  I place a triangle in one corner and then follow it up with random width strings.
 Then square them up.  I've seen a few quilts on pintrest with rectangular string blocks and want to play with the idea.
Just one more in a long list. But as the list grows I'm insured I'll never be bored.


  1. I like the idea of using dryer sheets! I'm assuming you don't have to remove them from the finished block like you would paper?

  2. I always love to see what you are up to. But MY list of future projects grows with every post :)

  3. Your houses are so sweet. You always do such a great job with your scraps.

  4. Love the colors of your new houses! I don't like making house blocks, but I so enjoy seeing them.:)

  5. What are the dimensions of your house blocks? I keep trying to figure out the optimal size for using up scraps. Use 5" squares? or 2.5" strips? Or something else even more scrappy?
