Beginning to Build Sand Castles

Though I live nowhere near the beach, I'm starting assembly on the Sand Castles quilt from Bonnie Hunter's book, String Frenzy.

Putting together the block centers (The stiletto is a gift from a quilting friend. Thanks, Carah!)

String triangles added, though not yet trimmed

I think I've got the process figured out now, so full steam ahead!

Happy String Break!

I'm enjoying String...errr...Spring Break this week.

I cleared the decks of projects, so I could start an new one during this week of time off from teaching.

My new project, you ask?

This quilt is from Bonnie Hunter's latest book, String Frenzy. It includes string blocks and lots and lots (and lots and lots!) of four-patches.

As you can see, I've been working on the string blocks. Today, I'm sewing strips together for the four-patches.

I'm enjoying a new project--and I've a long way to go!
