I love string quilts

My daughter says they are 'homey' if that's a word :)  I just love the look and heaviness of them and the ability to take nothing and make it into something useful.  I've been working on this for the past couple of days and I love just sitting and sewing mindlessly.  This one will be quilted and given to a returning wounded soldier coming through Travis AFB on his/her way home.  My first project of the summer.

This morning I woke up feeling a bit 'off' and now have the aura of a migraine.  Bummer.  I was doing so good.  I think I will drink some of the Valerian Root Tea.  It seemed to help last time.  Of course, more sewing to relax the mind.

I'm going to start working on the memory quilt for my teacher friend who died last year.  Her daughter has two kids and I plan to make two small quilts so they can have a keepsake of their grandma.  Each quilt shouldn't take very long to make.  The hardest part is deciding on the pattern.

Nice string quilt. I've always admired and loved them so they are on my list for some day.
