Yesterday was one of those days where you don't have much time to sew, but you have to sew something...I didn't want to work on a Work In Progress--I wanted some instant gratification! Enter my collection of "strings." I was only going to sew one block...but you know how that sometimes goes!
There are just some fabrics that I can't bear to throw away...even the smaller pieces...so I've patiently been collecting "strings" to make a scrappy quilt. (My string blocks finish at 6". I used Stephanie's tutorial to make my blocks).
The funny thing about "strings" is they seem to multiply. You can use one and still have enough left to use again. My pile didn't seem to diminish, especially after I remembered another place I'd stored some!
I'm hoping to make a lap-size quilt made completely of my Fig Tree & Company strings. After that I'll tackle my bin of "color-wheel" strings. That should keep me busy for awhile! (I'll announce the giveaway winner in my next post)! Have a sew wonderful day!
