Winter Concert

Grand Rapids Women's Chorus
winter concert TONIGHT
7:30 PM
Trinity United Methodist Church

Come see our new vests, 
enjoy Japanese, Hebrew and English songs,
eat homemake goodies.

Roll, Roll Cotton Boll mystery continues.
Here are a few, string pieced 8.5 inch squares of "neutrals" or background prints.  We are all digging through our bins of strips that are too narrow or short to be called "strips", and hence are called "strings".  I found I had more than I expected, but not a very great variety of prints.  So I have raided some fabric on my shelves and CUT a few strips. Bonnie said we should use anything that was more neutral than colored. So some color is allowed.

Her suggestion is to use phonebook pages as the base, cut to 8.5" square.  Well, when I tried to rip the pages out [of the Dentist section] very carefully, I still didn't get the full 8.5" width of the page.  Hmm.  Got to make the strings a little longer than the paper, so how much help is that?

Made six yesterday.  Let's see, if I make six a day, I'll have the 30 needed in 5 days.  Maybe I won't get six done every day.  But it looks do-able.

I can't wait to see how everyone's mystery quilt turns out. Great job on these blocks.

Oooo, I love those flashy outfits. Our choir just finished two services with a "Ceremony of Carols" wearing plain choir robes.
Happy piecing.
