scraps and the end of summer

I am ankle deep in scraps up in my sewing room.....time to sew some of them up and get them out the house. Have you noticed that scraps never really get used up they just keep multiplying?
I love the beauty of a perfect morning glory
One of my shade loving peonies going to seed. Yes, these are the true colors.

Its been a very wet cool summer here in Pokeytown, the vegetables didn't produce much, we had no tomatoes and no summer days with temperatures above the 80's. And now its nearly over.

I have been wanting to do a string top for awhile, just can't seem to get started. I cut paper and glue sticked a red center to 48 blocks as a start- but they have been sitting around mocking me all summer. Can't decided whether to just add scraps any which way or do a light/dark thing. Keep showing off your blocks and maybe I will get off my chair and get further along on mine. cw

I love doing string quilts too. Sometimes when I just don't want to think about instructions, I crank out string blocks. I love to make them color controlled. Happy Quilting.
