Colour Catcher Strings II – Flimsy

You can sure tell that summer is on its way out! These pictures were taken on the morning of September 1st. That is fog you are looking at. The pictures are taken from our deck looking over the sports fields behind our house. The day brightened up OK, but at the time of these pictures, you would never have known it!

This was today’s fun. This flimsy is made from colour catcher strings measuring 4″ x 9″ – finished size: 3.5″ x 8.5″. I still have 28 colour catcher string pieces left in the box so I may go back and add another row to this one. I have not decided what to do about borders. I am leaning towards a black border and multicoloured binding (thanks, LJ). The size right now is 52″ x 64″. it is definitely large enough for an average lap size quilt. However, since most of my family members are over 6′ tall, I may add another row and lengthen it a bit.

I plan on showcasing another of my Circle Lord templates in the plain black squares perhaps using a variegated thread. This one will have to sit for a while before it gets quilted….customer quilts are waiting!
