You know that saying "close but no cigar." Well that is what I can say about my red string quilt. The strip sets I had made wasn't enough, even thou I did end with parts left.
But they were not the 6" strips which I am 12 inches short of completing one X block.
That's one block short of finishing all of the blocks for the top.
Now I don't have all the blocks up in the picture showing my design, it's due to the limited space on the wall.
It's 2 rows short.
My plan for today is to assemble all the blocks after the additional strip set for the piece needed to finish the X block. I think I'll gonna go head and make a larger strip set to cut that down for the border.
Before sewing the rows together, I need to position the X's a certain way. Looking at whats up now I can tell they are not. It needs to look like chain links.
Besides working on the string quilt yesterday I was able to can 5 quarts of lime pickles
I need to make some zucchini salsa also but I'm not sure if it will today. I'm just not in the mood to can another day
Thank goodness my livelihood isn't depended upon what I get canned.
Looks like our first day of September is going to be more like a day in August. It's going to be very warm and humid
