I haunt Pinterest in my “spare time” looking at pretty quilts. OK, maybe it’s “procrastinating time” rather than actual “spare time”, but you get the picture 😀
There are many similar examples on the internet. I did not use a fabric foundation, as many string quilters do.
I made no attempt to use the same number of strips in each block, and my husband points out that the blocks do vary quite a bit. All good, I say.
I used strips from my scrap bins.
Those scrap bins are filled by cutting all leftovers into uniform strips, which vary in width from 1.5″ to 4.5″. These strips are useful for many things, from tying up packages to adding just the right bit of color to some projects. They do often overflow, though.
Here are a few of the other projects made from the strip bins:
And WOO! Paducah quilt week is only a week away!!! If you’ll be there I’d love to meet you!
Meanwhile, I’ll have a tutorial next week on how I did this fan block.
