Homespun Plaid String Quilt Top Done!

Here it is...the top is done...This quilt was amazingly EASY to put together...thanks for the inspiration Julie!

The colors are not as bright as they look in these pictures.

Next step batting, backing and quilting!!

I got my new computer...a real beauty...a week and a half ago...still trying to figure out Windows 7!  

Seems when they try to update things, they only get harder and more confusing. I'm totally LOST without Outlook Express for my was soooooo CLEAN.

Well, I must get back to sorting out my files.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Computer Troubles

A few days ago my computer just up and died...can't get it to start...Luckily when my son was here in June he hooked up an old tower.  So I have internet and email...but no printer or camera hookup... so, alas, no pictures to share. 

I'm having a great time putting the homespun plaids string quilt is going so smoothly...I'm really impressed.

My 9 patch blocks came out slightly smaller than the 3 1/2" they are supposed to be...but I'm easily able to line up all the intersections.  Wish I could show you, but I am taking pics for later.

Hopefully I will either connect this old tower to the camera...or get a new computer...either way it will be awhile.

Have a great day!

Yeah...I may have done it right!

Here is the preliminary block for the plaid quilt...just thrown down on the cutting table to see if it all fits!

It actually looks like it might come together...I've been secretly worrying about this quilt...cause my measurements might be all wrong.  But it's not over yet...they have to be SEWN together not just placed side by side!

Right now I'm HAPPY CAMPER!
