Clue 5 and String Blocks

Bonnie said that the clues would be easy during the holidays and she delivered.  I had time on Friday morning to cut out the turquoise squares, so I finished the blocks Friday evening – a record for me.

My box of Easy Street parts is getting full!

Saturday and Sunday was spent making 24 string blocks.  String blocks are a bit messy, but very satisfying to use up all those little bits.

Where are all those string blocks going?  They are being sewn into my version of Daylilies from Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling.

My version uses 12″ dresden plate blocks (gifted to me) instead of 14″ daylilies –

but I think it has the same “feel”.  I hope to have these blocks sewn together today, then it will be on to the borders.

Check out Easy Street Link-Up at Quiltville and Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on.

Happy Holidays,

      Thank you. I now have the middle all together and am working on the border. I noticed on your blog that you also used the Angler 2 for sewing the squares. It works great doesn’t it?

    I love your Dresden Plates! I think I might like them even more than the Daylilies blocks, since those stems are killing me.
