All the strings in this box are less than 2.5" wide. I have been trimming any strings larger than that into scrappy binding strips for a couple of years now, and I pretty much stay caught up with that. It took me a long time to decide to buy an AccuQuilt Go, but I have to say it is completely worth it for this sort of thing.
All the strips have been pressed and cut to 1.5" widths. The first thing I'm going to sew with these is more of the string herringbone blocks you can see here.
Inspector Rey confirmed the box was empty. My next New Year project was the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Every December I look jealously at the beautiful rainbow quilts being finished, so I finally decided to take the plunge.
I'm sewing Buckeye Beauty blocks, 6 per month at 8" each, on a grey background. Inspired (well, copied) from this beauty at Treadlestitches. We'll see how it goes... I have a problem with these kind of slow quilt alongs, the same problem I have with leader-enders. I'm bad at waiting. At some point, usually before very long, I get excited and just make the rest of the blocks and finish!
