Yikes! This month has flown by while I have forgotten to post our August charity block. I’m so sorry, but better late than not at all. This month we’ll make a scrappy string block inspired by the talented Lynn Harris, who taught a workshop for us in July. Bring your block to our September guild meeting or drop it at Guildcrafters.
Color Palette: Mudpunch Blogging: Green, purple, dark gray, light gray
Unfinished Block Size: 12.5″ x 12.5”
- Take out a 12.5″ square ruler, or eyeball it with your cutting mat.
- Stretch one string from corner to opposite corner being sure to overlap at the edges.
- Working from the center to the outside, sew strings that are shorter in length to either side. Be sure to starch liberally as you add each string.
- When you have reached the outer edge of your block, press and trim to 12.5″.
