Now there are 18 of these! You can see the four blue ones running from top left to bottom right.
What's left? Maybe dark green? And a few more Dresden sunflowers for the top part - I need to work out a plan for sashing and borders, too. I'm enjoying the slow process of working on this over time and thinking through the choices.
The other day, Mike was cleaning out a closet and found some old phone books to get rid of. I snagged one from the recycle bin to keep because I want to experiment with using the paper as a foundation for string blocks.
It's a small size phone book and I decided to try making rectangular blocks to use up a full page.
I ended up with a 5 x 9.5 inch block after trimming.
I know some of you out there have made string blocks pieced on phone book paper - do you like this method? I know that gives you the extra step of ripping out the paper - after you take out the paper, is the block stable enough? How about the rectangle shape of the block - if you've made a string quilt with rectangles, can you point me to your blog post about it? Some inspiration is always a good thing!
Looking for fall color up in the mountains, we went for a hike yesterday. The aspens were disappointingly either done or barely changed where we went, but the sky was a pretty blue!
Happy Fall to you! I'll be linking up with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!
