I'm still assembling and quilting CiL quilts, but I needed a kind of mindless project to work on in between. It started off with sorting my over flowing strings bin, trimming anything I could to 2.5" to make binding for upcoming quilts.
Then I started trimming the smaller strings to 1.5" wide...
...and next thing you know I'm making scrappy log cabin blocks. For centers I'm using a donated charm pack of marbled fabrics. The blocks end up 12.5" (they should be 13" but my seams must be a little fat) and I need 24 of them plus 6 end cap blocks to make a quilt. Maybe this will put a dent in my strings bin? It could happen.
Here's Rory, the height of dignity, helping me put together a disappearing 9 patch top.
