Well, I've been sewing like the wind today, I guess. Once I decided what size to make the blocks, it was so much better. I thought that instead of joining indeterminate lengths of strings together, and then cutting the blocks--as I usually do, I would try something new. I decided to cut all the blocks 8 inches square. And to cut the strings into approximately 9 inch lengths. Then everything went very fast. I have made this quilt pattern before, but I had made the strings in solids and the blocks in prints. This time I made most of the strings in prints and the blocks are going to be various solids. And I even got to sew a couple of strips and took this quick photo. I managed to use up a bunch of scraps in this one. Still lots of sewing to do. And I've been tying that medallion quilt while I watch TV. All this takes my mind off of a medical condition that started driving me nuts today--I have to go to the doctor first thing tomorrow. I have a rash on my scalp and neck. Darn-just when I wanted to go for a haircut. That hairdo will have to wait. I think that I'm allergic to shampoo. I tried switching to other brands, but no luck!
