Inspired by Bonnie Hunter's string piecing on paper I set out to make these 12.5" blocks. A newspaper provided big enough pages to cut out the paper base. Using shorter stitches and the bin of wonky strips I have been saving up for some time (a year or so). I have started separating my strings into three groups:
any other even width strip
wonky (end of fabric with frayed edges or cut at an angle)
It is fun to revisit fabric from the tops I've made over the last year, combining them in a new way, yet still being a bit selective of what colors to put together. Saving most of my warm color strips for another project. These uneven strips makes for a bit more lively blocks - really love the bit of whimsy...
There's still more strips in the bin. Enough for a few more batches...
