Strings


I didn't plan on giving this the border, but as usual, I measured wrong by about an inch. Ugh!
Anyway, this is known as a string block. It's one of my favorite kind of blocks to do.
Enjoy, Christina!

OH
P.S.
I'm mailing you all fabric tomorrow. Sorry for the delay-my cat ran away and I forgot to go to the Post Office.

I know I have been bad (I am not even blogging on my blog) but I will come back. I love the block. I can't even imagine how you did it. What am I supposed to do with the paper? Will it just dissolve out? Thanks!

Christina, the paper will dissolve once you wash the quilt. If it gets in the way while you assembling, you can sponge the back and it will pull off. I didn't want to mess with it too much in case you needed to tweak it. In the future I will use a muslim backing instead of paper.
