I deboned a Hawaiian shirt for the border a la Bonnie Hunter style. It was a fun new experience for me. I have to become more of a scapper before I venture into that process more. I can see how it could be addictive though.
Sadly this second quilt was started because the one above got lost in the process for a really long time. These blocks were made to replace the above quilt. Since the first was recovered we now had the makings for another. A recipient has been identified and is now in progress for that person.
If it were not for these love quilts I don't think I would be doing much quilting. I have been pushing myself to work on a second Orca Bay but just can't seem to spark to it. I think it is just too complex, at least in my mind, for me right now. I am going to see if I can motivate myself to finish the string blocks on that one before I abandon it for now and move onto something else.
Hugs my friends!
