Friendship Strings

This quilt is the result of a failed experiment.

You can read about it HERE.

The lesson here is not to give up, but to think of new ways to use what you already have. I am happy with the final design.

Friendship Strings

Fun fabrics--corn, cows, and candy corn...

More fun--sock monkeys and pickles

This was a long time in the making, but YAY! for the finish.

Crazy Eyeballs

I finished my latest mystery quilt. I don't know the name of the block, but I call the quilt Crazy Eyeballs because of the print fabric.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge--March--Red

I'm participating in  the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. You can find out about it at soscrappy. The March color is red. 

Red is my favorite color, so I have plenty of scraps to choose from.

Here are some of my string blocks. I was just playing around with a layout here; I've no idea how it will end up! Some are full string blocks, and some are half neutral/half color.

RED! Yay!

Pinwheel and X block

February's Aquamarine blocks

January's Purple blocks

I look forward to this challenge each month; it gives me a chance to make string blocks--one of my favorite things to do.
