I have done 25 blocks since I showed you the first one last saturday and I can say that
I really enjoy working on this project. It's so nice to assemble all those bright colors!
More blocks have to be sewn before reaching the size of a lap quilt. I hope I will show you
soon the finished top. Greetings.

  3. Your string fabrics are making a wonderful quilt, such a riot of color. You must be a fast sewer, it takes me forever to complete a few string blocks. The one I'm working on now is about half finished and I'm enjoying sewing the strings.

  9. I have made a similar pattern quilt. Cut various lengths all different materials and sewed 4 right angles together. I remember have some scraps... I'm confused; why the paper?
