Tuesday tutorial: Strip block

A scarp quilt has been on my To-do list for long so when I received this book, Scrap Quilts-Fast and fun as a gift and turned to page 109, I was convinced on giving the 'String Squares' a go. As usual though, am not following the pattern in the book. Let me write my own... Continue Reading →
