Still working on the yellow scraps. I wanted nine yellow for the cutting garden quilt and the Rainbow scrap challenge.
Tu na quilts asked if the string blocks magically make themselves, since she sees the beginning and the end of the process on my blog. :) I thought I might try sharing how I make them. This time, I am trying to make straight pieces that will make a piano key type of border for my diamond string quilt. I pull out a string and if it is bigger than 4 1/2 inches I sew them together. I am not using any foundation for this part. I am just laying right sides together and then pressing open.
This pile is a pile of triangles I am pulling out as I reach into the bag of strings and crumbs. When I am making string blocks that are diagonal on a square, the triangles are wonderful for finishing up the last bit of the edge.
I am not too concerned about color or shape. I can straighten them up fairly easily when I decide what I will add next.
