A few days ago, I pulled out my second Sedona quilt project -- fabric for a string quilt. It's coming together quicker than it would at home, where I always find something else to do.
Before we came down here, I cut old telephone pages into 7-inch foundation squares and selected an assortment of bright colors to cut into strings. Once down here, I started cutting and sewing them to the paper in a sew-and-flip manner.
The color I originally had picked for the center diagonal in each square was too muddy, so I bought the red batik at the Sedona quilt store. I also decided to add sporadic strips of the black and white print from my Jelly Roll quilt to give the eye a place to rest amid all the bright color.
It's a good, meditative project for when we're not hiking, and I can remove the paper backing in the evenings or with morning coffee.
Have a colorful day
