About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

FAST AND FURIOUS SCRAPPY STRING BLOCK


My absolute favorite block to make, You know when you dont want to start a big project but you want a big quilt, this is the way to go... I love making these blocks, I use the phone book pages for the pattern.  I  swap with this flicker group, its a no commitment group and the deadline is 3 months away from the start.. I make these blocks to relax and to use up scraps. I have made some I just cant get rid of because of what it reminds me of.  I now have a Full size Quilt in progress without any sashing,binding, just scrappy..6.5 X6.5 .Mini scrappy  string block . For your own keepings you can make any size.
