Sometimes I Actually Cut Into New Fabrics and Don't Use Scraps



I call them Apron Strings blocks.  They finish at 8 3/4 inches and are a bit fiddly. I'm using my kitchen themed fabrics.  This has been a UFO for a long time so I decided to delve back into it and make a few blocks . I think I now have 26 or so blocks and am aiming for 36. 


The block is from the book History Repeated.  See it there on the front cover? 
The actual name of the block is Wheel of Fortune. 
My sashing will be gingham with chicken scratch just like those old aprons I have in my collection of old aprons. 

Now you know why I call my blocks Apron Strings.

Interesting fabric, and a very pretty block pattern. Will you make a quilt, or maybe kitchen curtains? ---"Love"

Apron Strings will be such a fun quilt! Do you really have 36 different kitchen themed fabrics? (Silly question, I know. You have a better variety of fabrics than my local quilt store...)

Great blocks, Cathy. Love your kitchen fabrics and the title of the quilt is absolutely spot on.

I love your sashing plan for these darling blocks. Congrats on cutting new fabric. New scraps for the bag, too. Haha.
