I cut. And I cut. And I cut some more. I have no idea if I have enough, or even how large I want the quilt to be. As suggested, my strings range in size from 1" to 2.5". I realized that too many of my strings were on the wider side so tonight I cut some of them into more narrow pieces. I am using 7" squares as my foundation pieces, and we'll see how it shapes up. I'm pretty happy to be working on a block quilt for the first time. While I'm terrified that my cor ners won't come close to meeting up, it's super nice to be able to pick up a few strings and sew up a block when I have a few minutes to sew. With two kids under three, sometimes a few minutes in one go is about all I can manage.
Here is a shot of my first four blocks . .more to come. The process has me intrigued, and firmly hooked.
