What is this? It is about a gazillion strips of fabric, each about 1-2” x 7”. Some were cut with the rotary cutter, some were torn, just any way to get strips. They are tied around about 14 ft. of jute rope with a simple knot and then scootched closely together. HMMM. my spell-check does not like the word “scootched”. It’s probably NOT a real word, but you all KNOW what I am talking about, don’t you?
Very simple to do… it just SEEMS to take forever, especially when you need 2 of them. Why?
Check out the new window toppers for the 2 HUGE windows in my quilting room. The picture really doesn’t do it justice… poor photo lighting. The colors are really neat, and it makes me smile when I walk in there. What a great way to use up those small strips in your scrap bag! Of course you COULD make a string quilt, but I have made enough of those… and who wants to use 1” pieces for a string quilt? It would take F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!
Confession: I forgot to trim back my rose bushes in February.
Result: They are already LOADED with beautiful blooms! And they smell really yummy, too.
Have a wonderful week! I will be out of pocket for a few days but I promise a full report when I return!
