Here's a preview of week 3 of FPPFTT, a nice, gentle introduction to strings, and the perfect way to use up trimmings from all sorts of projects (this is just some of the leftovers from my Stained QAL quilt for example):




I've also been asked by one reader if I'll be showing how to use up all these orphans we're creating, so I will try and create some more finished items for you shortly.  I will also link up to any projects any of you complete and post in the Flickr group, so now's your chance to shine :o)

  11. I had no idea what a string block is but after seeing these I'm sold. I gather it's a way of using those skinny pieces left from other projects. Right? I'm still learning the lingo. :^}
