I have no idea how all of these pieces are going together but I am liking my colors a lot. I opted to strip piece rather than string for those steps.
I am running dangerously low on my neutrals - hopefully we won’t need them in any further steps.
And while I elected not to sting piece for the mystery quilt, I quite possibly have been sucked into the Moda String-a-Long vortex. I stumbled across the blog post about the String-a-Long that included links to strip quilt inspiration on Pinterest. It was there I saw this quilt:
I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I found an ancient (2003) phone book and cut a page into a foundation for an 8” finished block. I folded the square in half to try out the split light/dark block. I struggled a bit with getting the split down the middle - I’m thinking that it would be better to sew those two strips together and align and pin the foundation paper to that to start. I also found that I really struggled to sew a straight line when adding strips - I definitely need to do a better job of that! This block will likely end up in the trash, but I do think I’m going to have to add this project to my “to do” list!
I am joining in on the Monday Mystery Link-up on Bonnie’s blog this week and will be spending New Year’s Eve finishing up the half square triangle step so I am ready for whatever comes next!
