Playing with strings

I have been playing with some black with white and white with black strings in between other tasks. I 24 of these blocks done and the second 24 are well on their way. I do however wonder how the bag full I started with is still essentially full.I have really been doing a lot of quilt pattern testing and that requires for the most part nothing be said or shown until the pattern is released. So the cone of silence will remain in place.
Last year at the end of the year I looked back at my favourite book for the year. I did look over my "books read" for 2016 and find that I do not have a favourite. I enjoyed many of them and some were Book Club reads that I managed to finish. I have signed up for Harper Collins 50 Book Pledge again this year. I find it a fantastic way to keep track of books read and authors enjoyed. This is my 4th or 5th year and you can look back over the previous year's book shelves if you need to find something.
The first sewing task this morning is some mending. Not glamorous but necessary. Then back to my testing. Linking up with Cynthia for Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework (here) Piecefully, Joanne


  1. Playing with strings is so fun! You will have a gorgeous quilt with those colors/prints!

  2. Great idea to use color with those black and white strings. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  3. I've got backing fabric for a black, white, and yellow quilt. Still haven't made the quilt!! One of these days... Meanwhile, yours is a fin example of the color combination!!

  4. Just love the colours of these blocks. It's going to be beautiful.
