I’ve been deep in development/deciding mode as I recently revisited an old favorite block of mine to re-realize just how many design options there are with just this one little block. One of the reasons this has been such a long process is because I started with trying out another method than the one I used originally, way back in 2011 or 2012? Not sure why…… if it ain’t broke…..?

fullsizeoutput_76ebIt began as a way to use up all the beautiful leftovers from a special baby quilt (photos over here) I had recently completed.  I adored this fabric, mostly from Hawthorne Supply Co,  and wanted to play around and see what I could create.

This is what came of it.  I reconnected with my love of string blocks from many years ago, and decided it was time to have another go at it.


So after this gorgeous bundle of fat quarters arrived, I had a burst of inspiration and decided to just go for it.  Still using my new method, I put together all my blocks.

While I love the results, I still wasn’t convinced that this was the best method for me. More about that in a future post!


I put the blocks together in one of the many layout options I love, and am currently working on quilting this baby up!  I’ll share here, as well as on my IG account when it’s finished!


Anyway, there’s more to the story, but I’ll save my next adventure with this block for another post.  Spoiler alert: I chose to stick with my original method which I created an in depth tutorial for, and has been circulated and used by many for years now! Why was I trying to re create the wheel again?:-)
