So much fun and so easy to do!
First of all I iron all my selected fabrics.
Then I look for scraps suitable for my project.
I cut strips of variegated width (between 3 and 5cm).
I cut a sheet of paper (for ex. printing paper) 21/21cm.
Instead of glue, I had the idea to use a double face, very thin,
sticking tape, that I stuck from one angle to the opposite angle.
Then I lay the first strip on it.
I sew the second strip right side against right side.
Sewing with small stitches enables you to take off
easily the back paper at the end.
I go on sewing strips one after the other, on one side of the central
stripe. Each time I sew a strip, I IRON IT CAREFULLY,
then I turn my work and go on the same way with the rest
of the strips, on the other side of the central strip.
Finally it gives this :
I turn my block and cut each side along the paper.
Last step : throwing away the paper.
This is very easily done!
I hope you will have as much fun as I had doing such a block,
and you will go on for a whole String Quilt!
If ever you have a question to ask me, please don't hesitate!
In my next post I will show you the progress of my string quilt. Greetings to everybody!
