I joined up with the Flickr Scrapbusters Challenge 2011 for a couple of reasons:
1. There's nothing I love like a scrap quilt
2. I have a lot of scraps, and the strings are especially out of hand. Or I should say- out of basket, since my bags of color sorted strings are just... overflowing.
3. The lovely LauraJ invited me!
So... I started a string quilt (oops! There's another quilt to add to the list!) I had my strings sorted into rainbow colors, so I started making rainbow blocks.
As Cyndi said, "Your true colors, True colors are beautiful... like a rainbow."
So pretty... I LOVE these colors... but I've made more than 10 8-inch blocks, and barley a dent in my string stash....
We're having a lot of fun with these, through. My 8 year old is helping choose the strings, and she loves peeling the paper off the backs. I have to admit that is my least favorite part of string blocks, so we make a good team!
We're going to keep making blocks until we either have enough for a twin size quilt for her, or all the strings fit in the basket- whichever comes first!
