I removed the 9 blocks in the bottom right quarter of the Card Tricks to take a picture of the pattern I want to use as the upper left pieced border. I did the same for each of the other three quarters. This way, the card trick blocks are repeated in the border. Using the picture, I started laying out a few of the 6 1/2" string blocks made over the weekend -- see picture below. Stay tuned and I will show you as I make more string blocks.
The String Blocks are fast when you only sew one seam on the foundation paper -- my method shown here. Never thought this would come in so handy. I was already making blocks for my string card trick quilt (needing 144 string blocks) and now I need 60 for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt!
On the right side of the design wall -- 8 1/2" string blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt Clue #3 -- yes I couldn't help myself, I started them (20 of the required 60). Guess I need to go back and sew Clue's 1 and 2.
