The last few weeks I've been sorting strings and other scraps. And I told myself if I'm going to keep these scraps I need to get something made out of them because they definitely take up a lot of space I don't have. I sorted strings into four separate piles -
1. pinks and whites
2. earthy colors - greens, yellows, browns
3. light blues, grays
I set aside the brights to use in donation quilts for kids.
I'm starting with the pink and white box. I'm surprised I have so many pink scraps but a lot of these were pieces left over from sheets I used for quilt backs for girls. The nice thing about strings is that they are basically already cut so I don't have to do too much prep work.
I have decided to try something new and different with each box of strings.
So far I've made some BIG wedge paper foundations and made 16 string wedges. I haven't trimmed them yet.
I'm thinking about what to do next. And I'm thinking I might have enough of this pink polka dot fabric for some pink string centers.
I work on these a little bit in between working on projects that require more precision like making all those small flying geese for my Blind Man's Fancy sashing or like adding the outside circles to those Boho Roosters or like making a bunch of 2.5 inch scrappy purple HSTs for this week's RSC projects or like sewing up a dozen Drunkard's Path blocks every week.
In the Pink (Strings) is for break times.
