Inspiration, Part 2

Using a tie as inspiration....

I created diagonal fabric using strings of pinks, on foundation fabric cut 5" x 8" (used those "yucky" thin, cheap fabrics in my stash for foundation). After stringing the foundation, starched, ironed and trimmed to 4.5" x 7.5". Each of the string blocks will be framed by 1.5" strips, finished block 6.5" x 9.5" (including seam allowance).

The setting blocks are 6.5" x 9.5" of pink (yes, more pink). Using 2.5" green squares, stitch diagonally, clip excess, flip and iron.

Now off to make more string blocks.

Stay tuned, more to come.

Have a Great Saturday!
