It's Just Emmy Hoop Exchange

So I saw this fun hoop exchange on IG for the It's Just Emmy adoption fundraiser and I thought it seemed fun and for a good cause (can't beat that combo right?) so I signed up. My partner said her kitchen was orange, yellow, green and turquoise which is such a fun color combination - it took me a bit to decide what I wanted to do but then inspiration struck and I got to work. In all honesty inspiration came in the form of Lucie Summers' Quilt Improv book - amazing! So I raided my extensive scrap bins and made this string block. I used 6" muslin squares as the foundation instead of paper since I knew I wasn't going to be quilting it.
Then I put it in a 10" hoop, panicked a little at the thought of cutting any of it off, bit the bullet and got it cut and glued. Then I added a couple of other prints (Sandi Henderson and Heather Bailey) gorgeous enough to stand on their own and voila! Hoop art!
I mailed it a little late (sorry partner!) But I really love how this set turned out and I hope she does too.
