I finally made a dent in my Jamestown Landing quilt. Its all I worked on all weekend. It can be found in String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It! by Bonnie Hunter. I finished all 840 half square triangles and I finished about 70 of 156 string blocks. I started sewing the HST's into broken dishes blocks too but I didn't get a picture of that. I can't wait to get this quilt done. Its for my bed and the first quilt I have kept for myself in a long time. I have been looking into sending it out for quilting because its going to be pretty big but I just don't think its going to be in my price range.
I posted awhile ago that I purchased these totes for organizing scraps and I would share my thoughts after using them for a bit. I purchased two different sizes. Here are the links to both:
I love them. I think I prefer the wider flatter size. They are not super sturdy as they are just thin plastic but they are great for small pieces. I have my scraps sorted by color now. The only complaint I have is that if you pack them too full the cover won't stay on. But I had some small adhesive velcro dots and that fixed that issue. I put all my bigger pieces, fat quarters or larger, in that tote on the bottom. Now I just need to find a place to store them in my teeny tiny house.
This week I am linking up to Freshly Pieced And Esther's blog.
