On Ringo Lake Block 1

Started assembling the blocks for ORL from Bonnie Hunter. I only went scrappy in the aqua and used one fabric for the rest of the color scheme.

"I did use paper but I pulled it out after trimming so I could do it as I watched football (GO PATRIOTS) and it did make it harder to keep them the proper size. I honestly never think to use starch but I do have some. Too late now, however."

"Thank you Ginny. I like the effects of the string blocks but the way they are made makes them very stretchy. I have had to do a lot of pinning and easing on this quilt. I hate pinning. They were fun to make, but not as fun to sew into the project."

Your rainbow mystery is great! Did you use the little pinwheels yet? I can't find them in the block, but I never would have imagined how your original blocks could turn into these!

Thank you Michelle on the baby quilt.  It was just a panel which I cut to fit and just quilted. One of the quickest quilts I made.
