What's Up




Over the weekend I put up on the wall was the Strip Quilt I took to the retreat and figure I could try to get a little done but I was too busy going to the laundromat cause my washer of 6 years need a new part and I'm in limbo waiting.Went to the one in the little town near me and to my surprise it was the cleanest, modern (machines) and so cutely decorated I ever had to use.




Pretty cool.......

Back to the wall


I'm liking the look. 
Beside.... now and then I see a fabric from over 30 years ago when I had made some piece of clothing using that same fabric.


This one will be a keeper cause of those memories.
No way would I part with it.

It will have to wait thou to get finished. I'm leaving tomorrow for Loveland, Colorado for a show. We need to be there by Weds. to set up.... so I'll be posting via my phone this week because we have to pack light and the laptop is staying home.

  1. Impressive laundry, fortunately it has been some time since I have had to visit one and hopefully that will stay the same. How wonderful to be using fabric that brings back memories from so long ago, certainly one that you couldn't give away. Have a safe trip.

    1. Thanks. So far it has been a good day. We went to a couple quilt shops along the way. Can't beat that.

  2. Wow! Who would have thought a laundromat could be so downright adorable? I wouldn't mind spending time there at all. Love your string quilt, and the memories factor is super neat.

    1. That's what thought too about it. Almost feel bad that the washer will be fixed next week. 😖

  3. I like your string blocks. It's a block/arrangement I've never seen before. I think it will be a fabulous quilt. How large are the blocks. Your laundromat almost looks like a museum. Nothing boring about doing the laundry there.

  4. It's fun how a scrappy quilt is like a memory book. Yours is lovely.

  5. Cute Laundromat! Makes one want to do their laundry more often. Kudos to the owner. Too bad about your washer. Seems like appliances don't last as long anymore. I just broke a piece off my 3 year old fridge just by opening the door and now we have to pay $200 for a new door and another $100 for installation of it (fridge only cost me $800 to begin with) or just learn to check it often to make sure the door is shut. Oh, the quilt.. It's beautiful. Glad to hear someone else besides me is not afraid to use "old" fabric for quilting. Karen

  6. What a wonderful scrap quilt. Like you, I am always happy to include beloved scraps in my quilts. You created a great layout - original but taps primitive roots.
