For another one of my block swaps, the latest challenge was to make up string blocks. We were given the fabric. Isn’t it fun and cheerful?
I had also asked for string blocks when it was my month in June. I sent out a pile of Heather Bailey fabrics and a white on white to use for a center strip. The blocks are all in now and when I laid them out on the floor, this is what I have. My little sweet pea kept trying to sneak off with the odd block (Cooper, aka The Artful Dodger, aka Mr. Chipper Shredder, aka Jaws). Here he has accepted that I’m keeping a close eye on him, but he’s got a block or two ready to snatch, just in case I look away for like, I don’t know, two seconds?
The blocks are actually very colorful. Here’s one before the block was trimmed down to size.
I’m thinking this might make a fun lap quilt. I could make up more blocks and have it rectangular. But that would require making up twelve more blocks. Hmmmm. I’m thinking square isn’t so bad. Wouldn’t this be a bright happy lap quilt to snuggle under while the winter winds blow?
