Some close up pictures of basting my string quilt. Notice the cat eyes in the first pictures. I love that fabric - I bought it in Iowa a couple years ago and I think it's all gone now.
I have been busy working in the yard and have gotten a lot done with help from a yard worker. Our front yard will look a lot better once I get things planted. Other improvements were made on our small patio and mulch will be put down soon. I wanted to get it done early. It rained a lot yesterday so it's too muddy to work in today.
I'm trying to use up fabric and sewed a bunch of 4-patches together. The 2 1/2" squares have been cut for quite some time and were left over from a quilt I made for DS#2/DIL and they got married in 2003. It wasn't a wedding gift, but I think I made it a couple years later. So it's about time I did something with the scraps from it. A simple 4-patch will make a nice lap quilt!
