I have some string blocks that I'm going to work into a project that I posted about last week and I've started working with 2-1/2 inch squares for some scrappy charity tops, but I STILL have way too many strips that need using up so today I went in search of my "Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts" book.
I bought this book for a workshop I was taking with some girlfriends approximately 3 years ago. I totally LOVED making the ones I made at the workshop but I kind of put the bin of strips away with the book and pineapple ruler and then never did any more. They have always been on my mind but I have no idea WHY I never made any more than these 6..... They're cute right????
I noticed over the weekend that some girls were making a "log cabin block a day" and some were making other strip blocks.....So, I pulled out my bin and got to sorting lights/neutrals with colors and then I hit a snag..........I'm holding the ruler in my hand and saying "how the heck does this thing work?"..... UGH
OK, have no fear. Between Gyleen's book and an online tutorial I found on a girl's blog, I was able to figure out how it worked and voile! I made myself 2 blocks today.....
How are you doing with your scraps and what are you making????
