Happy Scrappy Chaos


There is something strangely satisfying about taking a humble pile of strings, trimmed from the ragged ends and edges, and turning them into a bright and beautiful stack of blocks.  The greens are ready to be trimmed to size and joined together to make three more diamond crumbs.  It was a relaxing way to spend a morning in between the normal weekend chores.
Kurt has gone down south with the girls for a two day LAX tournament, and Ryan has a friend over to "hang out".  With just two days of school left, I think there might be a few more blocks lurking in the string bin.  First though, I'll hop over to Quilting is More Fun than Housework to see what is happening at Oh Scrap!

Love your string blocks! I never grow tired of seeing colorful, scrappy string block quilts. Lots colors, interesting prints, scrappy. They truly say soft, cuddly, comfort and warmth. What's not to love.
