Finished with strings for a while? Ha!!
Happy Monday!! I just can't leave those strings alone! I was just going to make a few string blocks, strictly for fun, with no plan in mind...but then the basket idea sprang into my brain, and then...I was off to the races! So here it is: Fiesta Baskets!
Close up of the border...which by the way was great fun to make! All out of the 2.5 inch string/square drawer. Thanks Bonnie Hunter for the scrap savers system; the system works tremendously well for me! The baskets are 8 inch finished.
And a favorite block! This quilt top is made entirely of gifted and saved strings. Wide strings and narrow ones too....just a whole bunch of scrappy fun!! Now...maybe I will do something else, other than a string quilt! (but don't count on it...)
