Blue and Green Scraps

I am cleaning out my scraps/unfinished projects and wondered if anybody wants these string blocks and a bag of blue and green strips to make more? These blocks are 16.5" and there’s 3 of them. The bag probably has enough strips to make a few more blocks if you wanted too, or if not you could sew these blocks together and make a runner or something. To make these blocks I used this tutorial except my paper size was 8.5" square.

Anyways leave a comment with your email if you really think you’d use them. If there’s more than one person I’ll pick someone randomly tomorrow night. But beware…I was really trying not to swear while tearing the paper off, so there’s little bits of paper here and there still on the back. So you have to promise that you won’t send me hate emails. :)


GIVEAWAY CLOSED....Thanks!

I love those squares! They're beautiful and I would love to add them to our house in some form. I think a table runner would be beautiful from those with the extra strips (and that aqua color is what I've been using on our table). You're work is always beautiful - love the blog!

This would be perfect for a little boys room! Would love to have these...

Lisa said...

I'm making one much the same at the moment, free download from Amy Butler's site and similiar colours. In the pattern you don't use paper but you sew the strips onto a fabric backing (fine cotton etc) its easy and no paper tearing afterwards! Obviously it will be slightly heavier to quilt (I'll be sending mine to a commercial quilter!...lol) great blog by the way :)
