2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, January, Blue, Week 3, String Blocks
During 2013, I paper pieced some 8.5" scrappy string blocks each month during the rainbow challenge. This week I pulled those blocks, laid them on the "design floor" and decided that I wanted to piece more scrappy string blocks this year. Because I want four string blocks in each color family, some months I'll need to piece 2 blocks, some months 3 blocks, some months 4 blocks. My goal is to have 48 string blocks finished in December. Forty eight blocks would make a colorful quilt top with a layout of 6 blocks by 8 blocks.
This week I pieced two blue 8.5" string blocks as I had two blue blocks from last year. The four cute 6.5" sampler blocks in the picture were pieced using Angela's sampler block tutorials. A knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. The colorful cotton yarn made by Sugar'N Creme, is one of my favorites. I love to knit.
To see what others made with their blue scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.
