Sunday Summer Scraps

Karen Snyder, who blogs at Anna Lena Land, hosts a "block-a-day" QAL each season. Each day during the season, participants make one block.  At the end of the season, quilters have made approximately 90 blocks.

For summer, the  block of the day is "Strings."  Click here for a link to her tutorial.

I'm a little behind on my summer blocks, actually, I just started them today.  But they go fast, and I have 12 done (on day 26 of Summer!)

 I used the "sashing" method, placing a 1 1/2" wide strip of Kona Snow across the center of each block.  When they are sewn together, this will make a cross-hatching of white sashing.

The best part of this project is, I've emptied one entire basket of my scraps bin!

 Tomorrow, I'll share the Mystery Quilt I started at Quilt Colorado this weekend.

  1. Very, very pretty and colorful!!! I love your creations. :)

  2. I'm jealous! I never seem to empty any of my scrap buckets. It seems the more I try to use up my scraps, the more scraps I create. I have no idea how that happens.

  3. I have a string quilt on my to-do list...can't wait to make it! Yours is looking especially awesome!!!

  4. Love your string blocks! Thanks for sharing the link.
