Since I'm the first one to post in 2011 - Happy New Year to all! I've been working on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at So Scrappy blog. Angela designates a color or theme every month and has challenged us to make something whether it be a small project, a large one, or to create individual blocks to make a single quilt at the end of the year. This month's color is blue. I decided to use some of my strips and make a string quilt. I also did the Bonnie Hunter Roll Roll Cotton Boll mystery, and after I'd sewn all of those string blocks for the quilt, I kind of missed them so this is what I've been working on.
Beginning of quilt with strips sewn on the diagonal.
Draw a line diagonally on the foundation paper. Sew 1/4" on both sides of the drawn line.
Cut on the solid drawn line.
You will end up with two blocks that look something like this.
I hope all of you out there are sewing some string blocks, too!
