I have been working a little at a time on Bonnie's Charlotte's Baskets. I have 25 and was going to stop there, but have since decided to make 5 more for a 5 x 6 layout. I have a few more HSTs to make and once I am finished with string blocks, I will get back to work on the basket blocks.
Here they are so far! They are a lot of fun to make! I really am liking my EZ angle ruler for making HSTs out of 2.5" strips.
My pile of string blocks is slowly growing. Currently, I have a few under 40 blocks and I need 60. I have made so many scrap projects this year that my stash of strings is really dwindling. I really have to dig around at times for long strings that go in the center of the blocks. My crumb pile, however, is growing steadily and waiting for some inspiration!
I use a phone book for the foundation pages and I think I am up to letter "P." That is a lot of string blocks over the last two years! I am also learning and now am using a smaller stitch length so none of the stitches pull out when I remove the foundations.
