I'm super excited and honored to be included in this fun and educational blog hop for my friend Amy!
Craftsy has this amazing Block of the Month series hosted by none other than Amy Gibson herself! Amy blogs over at Stitchery Dickory Dock and is just all around awesome. I had read her blog for a little while before I was lucky enough to meet and hang out with her at Sewing Summit last October. (What is Sewing Summit, you say? Blasphemy! Click through, read about it, then promptly sign up...you won't regret it!) She is an absolute doll and a total blast! We were quilty kindred spirits from the get go.
I particularly love the blocks she is teaching us this month, as they are slightly intimidating and I've been dying to try them for a while. Below you'll see my very first ever string block!.......and perhaps a giveaway.......WHAT?! Did I say that out loud? Read on...
String block supplies :: a few background pieces and lots of scraps!
Strings and scraps during...
Strings and scraps after!
I'm so happy with how fun and scrappy this block turned out! I'm officially addicted and must make more! And just imagine how it will help cull through your scrap bin!
And now for the moment you've all been waiting for.............the generous folks over at The Fat Quarter Shop are offering up a $25 gift certificate to their fabulous shop!
Be sure to follow along on the rest of the tour and show some stitchy love:
