There hasn't been much sewing time since returning from our fabulous trip. Sometimes quilting/sewing takes a back seat to reading, especially when it's on the back porch. My sewing room is upstairs and there's no AC up there. I really should be spending more time there because it's just going to get hotter!
I've managed a little progress on Bonnie Hunter's String Spiderweb pattern. The upper left shows sections sewn into two "blocks". The shrinkage is generally amazing to me. The "star" has become more prominent, and I'm not thrilled with that. Maybe it's just the surprise of seeing it draw up.
This is going to have to be a full size quilt for maximum impact, don't you think? It really was in the plan all along, but I really would like to make some smaller quilts; it just doesn't seem to happen!
