Strings

At the last meeting of Piecemakers, we had a sewing evening, and people made string blocks.  This was a new technique for some people, and everyone enjoyed working in just one colour.  We've been away for a couple of weeks, but since I've been back, I've been making up some of the blocks into tops. 


Since there were pink, red, yellow, blue, green and purple blocks, I put these together into a rainbow.  This will cheer someone up! 


There were quite a few pink blocks (some left over from another time) so I grouped these together into fours to make this lovely sashed nine patch.  Pink binding will complete it. 


Then there were some lovely blue blocks, but not enough for a quilt.  I think they look great as a border round this teddy panel. Mill add the printed border top and bottom, then finish with a royal blue wider border.  
The blocks left have gone into the 6.5" orphan bag, ready for another day!
