Happy September everyone! I love September. I love it because it is my birthday month, it is the start of fall, and Halloween is next month!
This month I want everyone to make 4 (four) 6 1/2 in string blocks.
There are several good tutorials, but this tutorial is the one I like the best. Rachel from ps i quilt does a fabulous job of teaching this technique. I especially like how she used a solid white strip for the center of all her blocks.
This Flickr group has several great examples.
I found this
I love the grey.
Please follow the tutorial on ps i quilt.
I would like your blocks to be 6 1/2 inches. Don't worry about putting the blocks together into one 12 inch block. I will do that. As far as colors go, I would like the center strips to be a bright white. Please cut 1 1/2 inch strips of thewhite for the center block. Go wild with the width of the other fabrics.
I will be using a variety of these fabrics by Kaffe Fassett.
I will be using the brighter jewel tones. I hope this isn't too confusing. Email me any questions! I can't wait to start getting your blocks. I will post pictures of my blocks when I get them done.
