Gray Bias String



Gray Bias String Quilt






I got one done this month. This is the UFO for April I was hoping to finish up. I had inherited a few bias tape packages from a friend what to do with them I would never use them for what they are made for. The narrow ones are really worth less to me but the wider ones may be useful. I washed them and used a few of the grey ones for the centers of some crazy string blocks. Used some other grey fabric scrapes to make a few more. And I have a quilt. Why this was a UFO for so long was.... The back had a lot of terrible wrinkles in it after quilting. ( I tried a different basting method that was a disaster) So I dug it out ripped out some quilting basted the areas and requilted and requilted till it was better not perfect but alot better. I sewed on the binding and I got it done by the end of the month.

That last colmment was from Ginete, not Brian. I did not realize my hubby was signed in! He would not know a bias from a border.
