In case you didn't know, I am addicted to "Craftsty" an online craft class platform. I am enrolled in several classes! They offer knitting, quilting, paper crafting, sewing, spinning and weaving. What's good about this is that they never go away.
If you follow me on "Twitter" or my you have seen a completed project from a Craftsy class. If not, you can find a pic of my completed project as well as the "BOM" that is in progress here: http://iknitnquilt2.blogspot.com/2012/07/happy-4th-of-july.html
This is my foundation for my "Stitch & Slash" block.
SwapBot! Do you know it? I am participating in a string block swap this month. The swap is being hosted by Katie, of Katie's Quilting Corner Podcast. We are using Bonnie Hunter's technique for foundation piecing. The foundation we are using is muslin. I love string piecing!! Your 1/4" does not always have to be a 1/4". Great beginner quilter block! FYI, I have completed my 16 blocks. I will be mailing the blocks tomorrow. Each partner will get four blocks. Yay, another completed task for the month of July. Hmmm, maybe I should keep a log of completed crafty projects each month. BTW, sneak peek of the blocks.
If you enjoy enhancing your thread stash as much as your fabric/fiber (fSq), check out Connecting Threads website. Essential thread is discounted 30%, $1.74. Can't beat that price and the colors are yummy. I started using this line of thread as a recommendation by one of the Craftsy instructors, Wendy Butler Burns. This is one of her thread choices in her "Stupendous Stitches" class.
