I made a promise to myself back in May that I would stop dragging
my scraps from NJ to Indiana to retreat every May and just use them. I decided on a string quilt and also one using 2 inch and 3.5 inch squares since that's what a lot of my scraps were actually cut into.
Here's the 1st block I made using the 2 inch scraps with Kona Snow. There are some more scraps attached over to the side of the block that I plan on working with this weekend.
When I started out making this project I didn't really have anyone in particular in mind but last night I was thinking about this as a finished product with possibly minkee on the back and a black and white or red and white polka dot binding and immediately thought that my youngest daughter would be the perfect person for it!
This next picture is of my first 11 string blocks. I don't have anyone in mind for this one yet either but I'm sure by the time I start assembling it and get it quilted, I'll have someone that could use it.
