Scrappy Strings Progress

They're taking shape.  

The scrappy string blocks for our first block lottery. 

It's not too late to make one or two (or more).  

Remember, your block and $1 for each block submitted, earns a chance to win the ENTIRE pile of blocks. 

We've started with a simple 12" x 12" sting block.  

Lighter weight scrapbook paper is ideal as it's already 12" x 12".

Your center diagonal strip MUST be white, and should measure between 1" and 2" wide.  

There is no color palette this month.  

Think scrappy.  Think colorful.  Think fun.  Think modern.

This tutorial by Ashley of Film in the Fridge is one of my favorites.

Another good tutorial can be found here.  It's from Rachel at ps i quilt

And Kira's tutorial for strip piecing can be found here.

  
Just think, for a few scraps and a dollar or two, you could walk away with enough blocks to make a quilt.  Ta-da!  Insta-quilt!
