Mini Quilt Monday :: The First String Mini
A little later than normal this week with the link-up due to...life. Ever have have one of those days just realize that it's really actually going to be one of those weeks? I'm pretty sure this is the way that May is going for EVERYONE so I'm just going to roll with it.
So this week I thought I'd share the very first string blocks I ever made and as I was looking at it I realized it's also the very first mini quilt I ever made as well! How fun is that? So this was at least 6 years ago and I was IN LOVE with everything Anna Maria Horner (some things never change) and I wanted to try making some string blocks. I guess NOTHING really changes around here and it's kind of making me laugh as I realize it!
I used paper squares for the foundation of these blocks which I don't do anymore - way too tedious removing all those pesky papers at the end. Plus I love the weight of the fabric foundation squares when the quilt is finished. I remember having no idea how to quilt this but I'd seen Ashley at Film In The Fridge do some random straight line quilting like this so I decided to try it. I still love this and think it's really me but I've certainly grown as a quilter since then! But it's always fun to look back and see the progress you've made right?
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully sharing a small project!
