Moving Along

I dug out my turquoise scraps and strings this week so I could sort through and see what I had to work with.


Lots of good choices for some string blocks!

In progress - 


Stitched and trimmed!



I definitely need another Tiny Rails block in turquoise, so when I had leftover string bits, I trimmed them to 1.5 x 2.5 inches and got them moving along, too.


And the strings and little bits worked for my Tiny Tuesday block, too.


I really like the progress of these fun blocks!


Hope you made some progress this week, too - whatever you're working on!

Your TT quilt is going to be so sweet! Pretty blocks, they look so lovely all together

Linda said...

Turquoise is definitely my favorite color. Those Tiny Tuesday blocks really are cute!
I don't feel I made a whole lot of progress, because I kept getting interrupted by having to go to the grocery store or Lowe's or weeding the garden - lol!

Marly said...

Wonderful! Making string blocks and then cutting the leftovers to make more blocks. It looks like you're using every last scrap!

Vicki in MN said...

Your string block is beautiful! Do you draw the beginning line on your phone book page before sewing the first strip?

Louise said...

Sounds like we're having similar weeks! A little bit of this, a little bit of that, plugging away on various projects. Variety is the spice of life :)

Barb Neiwert said...

So fun to use up those scrap bins! And such a variety you have. I still need to make a string quilt one of these days....

really like that log cabin layout layout - courthouse stairs I believe it is called?

Mari said...

The more I see them, the more I like those string blocks! Your tiny courthouse steps block is just perfect, too.

I love seeing all your blocks together. I missed the Tiny Tuesday spool block. I must go back and do that one! Now if I can just remember the blogger that had the tutorial. I did see it, but you know! Can't remember S_ _ _!

Your strings are so perfectly cut and matched. I love those little rail fence blocks. Aqua fabrics are fun to play with!

Cathy said...

It's fun watching your Tiny Tuesday grow.

Love love love those string blocks!
The other blocks look great, too, but oh, those strings!

Cathy said...

So many great blocks here, Diann! I’m really loving your TT blocks. And I’m planning to copy you and start a rectangle strings project in the late summer or fall. Thanks, I think! 😂

Auntie Em said...

Your tiny Tuesday blocks are looking great together! Keeping up with addubg the outer borders as you go is a plus!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Beautiful blocks Diann!

Preeti said...

That String block is likely to inspire a Dreami!!! Love all your blocks :-) even though I am a bit jealous of your neat points.

Sandra Walker said...

Just love your aqua work! The Tiny Tuesday I wish I'd joined in; yours look so good...might have to try to add it into my schedule! Like Preeti says, a DrEAMi though she's referring to the strings one!
