Hi all! I've been crazy/busy with travel/teaching and an on-line class that is now finished.
But thought I'd poke my head in and share this with you before I finish packing and leaving for another week of teaching. Waaahhhh -- I want more time in my studio to play!! Too many ideas coming from "what if?" and not enough hours to try them out!
Since I wasn't careful with the amount of strings cut for Chinese Coins, there were enough to make a second quilt, too. This used some of the strings discarded during the first quilt; it's much louder and more vibrant.
I also found some strings of triangles in the scrap bin. They were a failed experiement that worked beautifully here.

Using stripes was great fun! There were more striped fabrics than I originally saw. So many fabrics look completely different in small pieces.
I used two different striped fabrics in the binding... Because there wasn't enough of either to go all the way around. More on my blog here.
