No strings, Day 2

I had forgotten how much I love making string blocks, so I pieced together 16 before I even knew it. The blocks are really plain; one string pieced to another without any foundation.
My initial idea was to cut all the blocks to the same size, but I’m trying something new today. The shortest block in each row determines the height of the row, and the width of the blocks varies. I love all the bright colours. There are old scraps and new scraps with lots of memories and lessons learned between them.

  4. You can clearly see your favourite colour palette in the scraps. I'd love to see the finished result.

  5. I'm loving those colors Nina, can't wait to see how it all turns out. I'm really interested in the different sizes of blocks.
