Oh Scrap! : More Red String Blocks

Over the weekend, I haven't had too much time to sit and sew.  The weather was so warm and beautiful Friday afternoon, I decided to head outside and dig in the dirt a bit.  It was wonderful!




I did get the rest of my red scrappy strings sewn up into 6" string blocks.  I ended up with a total of 28 blocks - which is not enough to really do anything with so I will just store them for later. 

I still have quite a few red scraps but they are nice big chunks and I just don't want to cut them up into smaller pieces.  They all fit nicely in my color bin without being squished so I think I will say I am finished sewing with red for the month of March.

Time to move on to something new!

It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

Reds are one of those colors that a little goes a long way. Maybe that's why some of us don't have as much in our scrap bins? Lots of strong and vivid reds in your blocks, very dramatic.

I am loving all the red this month! A question I have for you is - do you usually put a sashing around all your string blocks before completing the quilt top? I'm trying to decide if my string star will need some sashing!

That's a good feeling to see the fabric tub not overflowing
