|Finished yellow string blocks|
Over a couple afternoons, I paper pieced 12 blocks. I thought that I liked the pink blocks best from last month. Now that I have pieced the yellow blocks, I like the yellow blocks best. I wonder, if at the end of March, I will like the March blocks best? Time will tell!
I removed the paper and I considered sewing the blocks together; but, I decided to wait until I finish sewing all the blocks. I might choose to mix the block colors rather than keeping them separate. Depending on my design, I may have blocks leftover for a second project! (Each block will finish at eight inches.)
The black fabric which resembles sashing when the blocks are set on the diagonal, gives these blocks a modern feel. I also like using a variety of off white/white/cream and light tan neutrals. Those blocks also look interesting. So far, I like piecing a few blocks. I like piecing from my scraps, although I don't see a noticeable reduction in the amount of scraps! I'm having fun participating in the RSC and I'm glad I decided to hop in and play along.
I will need to cut more neutral strings to sew the blocks for next month; but, that won't be difficult! I'm linking to Rainbow Scrap Challenge. If you want to participate, go to this link to access the landing page.
