I decided to go ahead and get working on the string blocks during our snow storm. These are the string blocks foundation pieced onto batting that CiL did for our Jan/Feb drive. You can see my tutorial on how I am assembling and "quilting" them here.
I'm having a lot of fun picking our color groups and playing with patterns. The top quilt is pink, purple, and yellow moving in a diagonal across the quilt.
Next is blue, aqua, and green color blocks. I've decided it looks best when I have all the stripes slanting the same direction.
I tried to get pictures of the diagonal wavy quilting I did through the blocks, but it's hard to see. You can just see it on the upper right against the navy blue fabric.
I've gotten lots of blue blocks already so I did a color fade on this one. Lastly, the one I showed from the tutorial, is an orange and red checkerboard with horizontal quilting lines through the blocks.
They're fun to make and easy because the quilting step is basically already done! Sundae is also enjoying these pre-padded blocks. She's an expert at keeping them from flying away ;)
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 700 so far! During March/April we are supporting the Hands2Help Challenge instead of our normal block drive. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
