Lori at Humble Quilts is hosting a string along!!!
Have you seen Gretchen's string quilt? It's G O R G E O U S!!!
When I saw the Jungle Cabin quilt on Sarah Goer Quilts blog, I knew what I wanted to do with my pink strings!
First I looked at my string strips. They are mostly 40" long. Will there be enough? No worries. I can make more. I know I have the pink scraps. Then I selected a center sized block 6.5" x 8.5".
I started sewing and pressing and sewing and pressing. Will that dark neutral be to dark? Too late... It's in there. I'll have to add some darker ones later to balance it out. I LOVE that fabric, by the way.
What good is a scrap user's system if you don't USE it? I mean, it looks great all organized and on the shelf in that strip craft box that has the little plastic holder things that keep things in place even if you drop it upside down... It made this project go much quicker to have the strips already cut (Accuquilt strip die cut is my favorite way to go when someone gives me a bag of scraps.)
I also drew a plan. See that pink highlighter in my graph paper quilt book. I actually have a plan!
Mr. Sunshine was a tad under the weather yesterday. We're off school for Christmas break. It was a good time to sew and for him to play with his new iPad and Wii games. PJ Day!!!
My original plan was to use the block instructions at Building Blocks with Friends, but that site is no longer available. I think it looked like diamonds... What size will my log cabin quilt be? Will I have enough left over to make two pink crib quilts (one in each pattern?) Stay tuned... I'm sure this will continue.
I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC18. The RSC18 linky party is here.
