String Blocks

I've been working on my string blocks for this month's UFO and I found a great idea from Michele, owner of "Quilting Gallery" web site.  Check it out, the link is on the right hand side of my blog.  Any way, she was making strips of fabric from her little bits.  What a great idea!  I have lots of little string pieces leftover from the bigger strings.  And face it, you can only use 2 of those on the corners of each block.  So the tin I kept the little bits in was overflowing.  So I made a strip and used it in my block.


Pretty cute, huh?  I thought so.  Now, I have to be careful and not collect too many of those little bits as they could take over.  Kind of like the string bin has......
