TGIF...again! Busy week here, family wise. The weekend should be quieter. I first showed the "in progress" beginning of this top on the Riding the Orphan Train Blog. Since then I've added what worked for me, and now I have to decide if it needs borders. I'm not big on borders. Maybe it's that I like 'periods' better than 'commas'. When I get to the edge of the piecing, i feel as if that's all I have to say.
I snapped a close up for your inspection. I've grown used to the 'put together' look. As you can see, there REALLY are a lot of assorted parts, blocks and bits that go into an Orphan Block quilt.
My friend Jean is at the beginning stage of string piecing. It's a whole new concept to her, and she's having a ball. In the past two weeks, she's completed 2 sets of blocks(42 blocks each) to assemble into her first 2 string quilts *VBS* I must admit I got infected by her "bug" and began to play with my bin of strings. I'm only up to 12, but I'm having fun! How about you, and fun happening at your house???
