In between adding borders to my braided herringbone quilt, and working on my "String of Pearls" table runner, I stitched rows of 2 1/2 inch squares together and ended up with a couple of blocks. What a fun and easy way to get started on a quilt completely out of my scraps! I figure I will need 20 of these to make a quilt, so I'll just keep laying out the little squares and stitching them together as I work on other projects.
I found the perfect background fabric for my String of Pearls tablerunner - Kona Tarragon. It was even on sale at my local Hobby Lobby. I haven't ever worked with a Kona cotton before, and it is lovely! It has a beautiful texture and weight to it. I am really happy I went with this color and fabric.
Oops! Oh well, luckily I have plenty of fabric! I'll just keep going! Happy sewing, everyone!
