HeartStrings is having a Block Party and while I’ve got a lot to catch up on, I couldn’t wait any longer to join in. We have several options for participating and I decided I’d make a set of half light/half dark blocks with a brown center string. It’s been a while since I went into my string bin and surprising I found that most of the bin was taken up with scraps – in the past, I’d always cut my leftovers into strings but now I’m more likely to save larger chunks to use with one of my GO dies. Still, digging down deep, there were plenty of strings in the bottom – I’m just hoping they’re not too ugly! It seems like I’ve picked over the better ones.
So my sewing room is a complete mess now, strings everywhere, trimmings from all the bindings, the fabric for the schoolhouse sashing, and some pinks for a Strippie for the new baby waiting to be pieced.
Becky picked Flamingos after I asked her if the giraffe quilt was going to work for her now that we knew the baby is a girl. (She thought the giraffes leaned a bit to the boyish side)
