A great use of the lighter backgrounds, everything from cream to grey to tan.
I couldn't get this next one to turn, but it still looks fantastic. I love the shirtings, and the varying amount of strings inset into each block. A subtle Americana piece (to me).
As usual, Gwen has super samples to hang in the front of the class. I have her String book and love the antique quilts that she profiles. A great way to get the creative juices flowing.
I loved the background used on the sample below left.
At first I thought this was mine, but quickly realized I didn't make nearly this many blocks.
Day 2 & 3 to follow......
Note to Gwen - Thanks for taking a few hours to talk with me Sat evening, you have no idea what that meant to me. Thanks you from the bottom of my heart.
Hope you have found time to stitch this week!
