Finally we get to use the main color. I'm about halfway done with step 4 and I must say I am completely and utterly in love with string blocks! I never really cared for strings and hadn't even tried until Roll Roll Cotton Bowl. And I was bitten by the string bug then. I loved the neutral strings. I did another string quilt after that in black and white and really like that as well. I've used strings (again mostly in neutrals) when I don't have a large enough piece of fabric for my project - I make one out of strings. But this is the first time I'm doing strings in color and my goodness I'm totally smitten this time. First the blue ones were so cute, and then the green ones - oh my I'm in heaven!! Green is my favorite color and I just love how these look.
Now let me say that I have no idea how these are going to turn out, and actually I am 100% wrong so far at guess what Bonnie is going to do. So you can pretty much say it WON"T look like either of these :) I just wanted to see how the colors all look together and I like it!!
Don't forget to check out the Give Away here, I'm giving away a copy of "Fat Quarter Quilts" and 4 fat quarter. You don't have to be a follower to enter. The winner will be drawn on 12/17 so you still have time. There are over 230 quilters participating in the give aways all week long at Quilting Gallery Stop if you're feeling lucky :)
