Greetings, fellow String Thing Along-ers!
Brenda asked if I would share a link to a scrap block that I made recently for a challenge Sarah was having at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I am happy to do that!
HERE is the link to my blog post and tutorial about it, where you can read how I was inspired by a chocolate bar wrapper (weird, but true). We were to create a block using the scrap management system described in Joan Ford's book Cut the Scraps!, which has you cutting your scraps into 5 inch, 3-1/2 inch, and 2 inch squares. We didn't have to use all the sizes for the challenge. I used 5 inch and 3-1/2 inch squares for my block, trimming several 5-inch squares into four strings 1-1/4 inches wide.
I have not yet made a whole quilt with this block, but if any of you do, please let me know and share pictures!
