I wanted to try stitching ...
If you remember last post I had sorted my overflowing string scraps by color. I decided to start tackling them by taking the two largest piles and making a traditional style string quilt.
I've been using the Rainbow Scrap Challenge prject to empty 2 bins of charm squares that I collected a long time ago. One set was 30's, the other batik. They are the 2 projects that I've worked on at my quilt club sewing weekend each month.
