    Jamestown Landing by Bonnie Hunter



    Does it count if the white is not pure white, but "neutral"? This is the pic from Bonnie Hunter's blog where she advertizes for the book "String Fling" that includes the pattern.

    This is one of the WIPs I'm working on. I already have all the neutral string blocks and I am slowly building up the broken dishes units. I aim for a lap sized quilt with as much blue variety as I can. I don't have any pic yet, as I haven't assembled anything: I just have a pile of neutral blocks and a bunch of blue/neutral HSTs,

      Yesterday was my first and only PJ's day in months, and I sewed and sewed! I now have (80) 4 1/2" string pieced neutral blocks I have to remove the foundation paper from, plus (100) 4 1/2" broken dishes blocks I have to square up before assembling. According to my math, these should allow for a 48" x 60" top center.

          DISCLAIMER: THE FIRST PIC IS NOT MY QUILT BUT MY INSPIRATION. As I already stated on that first post, it is Bonnie Hunter's. I wish I could buy her book String Fling, but international shipping is too expensive. When I checked European distribution, Amazon.co.uk sold the book for 500.00 $!! Crazy!

          This is the stage MY quilt is at. A bunch of string neutral blocks and broken dishes:

            My quilt blocks are ready. Boy, are these seams bulky! I'm going to need to repress them with starch before assembling them.

              Just checked amazon.de - price is 12.08 EUR there, check whether you could order from here? might be an idea for a better price. Especially with ebooks ( on Kindle) it might be a good way. I have been goggling at the amazon.com options, drooling over books, notions etc. but it doesn't work to order internationally or is too expensive.

                Santa brought me "String Fling"! I was surprised to find out Bonnie Hunter doesn't assemble the units the way I do (as 9Ps), but I had guessed the sizes right. I'm liking the pattern so much I have been sewing more units for a larger quilt than first planned. I just don't know if I have enough blue fabrics for the string pieced outer border.
