As a break from border hell I rewarded myself with whipping up some blocks for Scarlett's string quilt. I have 48 blocks to make and have done 27, so my aim over the next week or so is to do at least 3 per day and knock this project on the head. After all it's only been languishing in my "current projects" box for 2 years.
I love making these scrappy blocks - you get to fondle favourite fabrics from projects past and the colours are just so pretty. I taught this project at one of our retreats a few years ago and you can download a tutorial for how I do it here if you like.

Earlier in the week I took part in Sew Mama Sew's giveaway - I have been overwhelmed by the response to my giveaway. When I first posted it I wondered if I'd have anyone enter at all! I have absolutely loved ready everyone's comments, it is amazing seeing where everyone is from and learning a little bit about your corner of the globe. You guys have amused me so much that I have decided to have a little bonus prize. I have another 8 Whimsy fat quarters and I will do a second draw on the 25th for them. So if you're keen head on over to this post and add your comment there.
