It's finally Friday again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Let's get started!
A little less than a week ago, I came across thirty string blocks in a ZipLoc bag and pulled them out. Putting them up on the design wall, I arranged them over and over until I came up with a chevron design that I liked.
Each block had a narrow black strip across the center, separating light from dark, so it seemed like a natural way to lay them out. But it was still small - about 32.5" by 39". (And I really didn't want to make any more blocks! So lazy....)
But wait! All that scrap cutting I've been doing meant that I have a LOT of 2.5" squares on hand! So I decided to make a 9-patch border using black squares in the center to echo the black stripe in the string blocks. But placed right next to the string blocks, it was too busy, so I added a narrow black stop border around the string blocks to separate them and give them their own individual part to sing!
I finished it off with a black border and black binding, and voila! A lovely scrappy finish!
This beauty will be added to our stash of ministry quilts, destined to become comfort and a quilt-y hug for someone in need.
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you!
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
