Yellow and blue strings

Tiny scraps sorted according to colour. I used these to make 1" wide strings. No wonder my fabric stash is getting smaller so slowly!


Now I have as many blocks as I need, and the quilt centre is ready. A couple of borders will be needed to make this a nice size for a child's bed, or for a wall hanging.


My socks of the week are very traditional, in the warm and heavy yarn men seem to prefer, in the perfect pattern my mother always used for the best fit.


I hope you had a good week and will be enjoying a nice weekend.

  2. I agree with Terri, great blocks and colors. Interesting how in the picture the quilt almost looks like it has a border on the lefts side from the bottom quilt.

  4. Did you enjoy the process of sissor cutting the scraps? The result is very fluid and contemporary. Nice! The remaining scraps must be about the size for crumb blocks or stuffing. More warm soccksfor under someone 's boots.

  7. A pretty modern quilt! I like the way you used your strips and the colors, yellows and blues go very well together. You knit so well, I think you already knit with your eyes closed! ;-)

  9. Such an unique and beautiful quilt Ulla. Comfy thick socks are wonderful in the colder weather. These are beautifully made too.
