Changed my Mind - Again

I've abandoned the scalding colors of the star quilt I was making for H2H. It just didn't set right with me mind, not right for a kid at camp. Then I thought of using my butterflies.... would be great, but it's mostly white and there aren't enough of them. I've decided on a string quilt with a central block of paper piecing - if it turns out nice. The block is a free pattern from Janeen over at Quilt Art Design. This month (only April) she has an Intermediate pattern for a darling little fawn that I just couldn't pass up. Go ahead - give it a look. You won't be able to resist.

Some cutting was done for the string parts, that should work for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge as well as the H2H offering. There are pictures!

 Already cut strips (above) and (below) is the stack of other I Spy favorites I plan to use.
More kid friendly...and not all white.
Went to see the eye doctor. He said my double vision is from a nerve stripping, a result of Diabetes.  Should be done in a couple of months... (Sciatica took almost a year, so we shall see.) The eyes see fine on their own, but together I see like a drunk! Everything is double. It could be worse though. While we waited the doctor took a call cause he was on call. The 94 year old lady's eye blew up! (She needs it removed.) I'm a lucky girl.
Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Fun fabrics, Terri. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  2. Hope your eyes get better soon--gosh this has been a year of eyes here, too...I like your idea for the Fawn and strings--strangely enough i just began a string project today all blues and up those eyes now...hugs, Julierose

  3. (MULTI) colorful strings is a GREAT way to use those scraps!! Can't WAIT to see how they turn out.

  4. Hope your eyes get better sooner, rather than later. Have fun changing your mind.

  5. Fun fabrics for a string quilt. Hope your vision returns to normal soon. Seeing double can't be fun.

  6. The bright fabrics will be great for a kid's quilt.
    Good luck with your eyes!

  7. Love your bundle of fabrics. OMG about your eyes.
