Last weekend, Bob and I got together with our NJ friends down at the casino for a Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes concert (that's Johnny above). That is actually where Bob first met Susie and Ron, who have become great friends of ours. Here's a picture I took of Southside Susie and my DH or as she calls him "Boyfriend Bob".



We all stayed overnight in the area and then they came to our house for another night. We spent time listening to music, hunting through the local Goodwill stores and went out for a nice dinner. Miss you guys already!

I did get the borders on my spool quilt and pieced the back. This is now ready for quilting!

I was bopping around blogland and came across Finn's pictures of her string blocks. I have been working on some with leftover batik strips from my jacket. I've been using old dryer sheets for foundations. So I thought I would post a pic of some I've finished.

Got some other projects almost finished and hope to post again after the weekend.

Now those are really string blocks! Very pretty. I just did a bunch, but they're much thicker.

Pretty string pieces--why don't you use them as the focal point of a nice quilt & couple them with some plain blocks?

Sounds like a fun weekend!

Love those strings. Can't wait to see where they end up.

Sounds like you guys had a great time! Can you believe I had a large stack of dryer sheet set aside for doing string piecing and my DH threw them in the trash...hard to yell at him since he was cleaning the laundry room but still....
