Since purple is the April color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I decided to spend some time this month working on a long-term string quilt project I keep at the camp.
I started making string spiderweb blocks several years ago, using purple and gold scraps from several Louisiana State University-themed quilts. It was a project I worked on periodically and there was no specific plan for a finished quilt.
As I counted up my finished spiderweb triangles, I realized I was getting close to having enough blocks for a decent-sized quilt. I prepped enough paper triangles and center "kite" pieces for a final finish of 30 blocks.
As of today, I only need to make 28 more triangle pieces! This project may actually become a completed quilt this year.
Since I was in a stringy kind of mood, I also made some purple Liberated Stars - or Maverick Stars. I don't know which name came first, but Gwen Marston calls them Liberated and Bonnie Hunter calls them Mavericks. Whatever you call them, they are fun to make from scraps and strings!
This year's stars and last year's stars. Finished block size: 6 inches.
And now I have miles to sew before I sleep, but I will be linking up with the other Rainbow Scrappers over at Angela's Soscrappy blog.
