Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

I am going to see strings in my sleep.....

I had a mountain of strings cut.

This pile was organized last night in dark, medium and lights.  Don't know what happened since then.

But I have been stitching away all day. 

This pile is pressed. 

Then I cut some of them into their segments and laid out a few to see how it was going to look. 

So, I have been stitching and stitching and thinking the pile wasn't getting any smaller, but this is where I have ended tonight.

Not too bad, but I have this pile to press tomorrow. 

And here is another look at some of the segments laid out this evening. 

Segments aren't sewn together yet.  I want to make sure there is a good distribution of fabrics before I do the final sewing for each row.  

I swear it took longer to sew them back together than it took for me to cut them.  

Oh well....I made good headway today.  I can't expect miracles.  


  1. this is looking great, you DID make great progress today. I hope to make a black and white quilt soon too
    will you be using red for your other color too?
    just like your inspiration quilt?

  2. Looks great. You have a lot done already!

  3. I love black and white quilts! I have to warn you though,
    black and whites multiply. I did a bargello (medium size) with them and
    have a box of scraps left. Looking good!

  4. I love black and white fabrics, you have done amazingly well, I would have faded by now. Keep going, I'm cheering you on and I can't wait to see more.
