For the month of April the Leduc guild Lotto block exchange was string blocks. I have been making 2 blocks most of the time. I had fun working on these little scrap gems. Always fun to pull out the strings and sew. The first block I did was made with 4 - 6 1/2 " blocks and set in a pinwheel Then I did 9 - 4 1/2" blocks and played with the setting and this diagonal setting was what I liked the best.
We just had 15 blocks and left them all together for one draw. I forgot who won.
Next month May we are doing flowers and we are to use green with Bright colours.
I played with the 9 small string blocks before I sewed them. First a star.
Then this one.
I almost made the block into this.
Nice but would be best if the blocks were an even number or a whole lot more of them.
At our May meeting I am the speaker. I am doing a show and tell and slide show all about Log Cabin Quilts It is Wednesday May 4th in Leduc at the St David's United Church 7:15.
