I love Bonnie Hunter. I love her approach to organizing your scraps (even though I don't organize), I love her mysteries - I have downloaded several. Then I get hung up on doing the string blocks..... I consider sewing string blocks mindless sewing (just my opinion, I am not calling anyone mindless here). Now mind you, I don't mind being mindless, I just can't do very much for very long. And, I do love the look of string blocks and I have a stack (if you can call 10 or 12 a stack) of 6 X 9 that is in my scrap bin and ever so often I pull out my bin and make a few string blocks - maybe someday I'll actually have enough to make something more than a placemat :-)
Okay, so what's this all about??? Is there an organized way to make string blocks? Am I missing something? I'd love to read some tips, tricks, advice, whatever anyone has to say about how they get a quantity of string blocks accomplished. I take all my trimming strips and throw (remember I'm not an organizer) them into THE bin, and of course because of this, whenever I decide to do some strip blocks, it's take the iron (which sits right next to machine) and press, then sew, trim, etc... OKAY, and if I was giving advice to me the first thing I'd say is "well, press those strips and put them neatly in a smaller bin" and my answer to self would be "I did do that - for about 5 minutes!" See not only am I not a very good organizer, I also have no patience TO organize.....
SO.... any help truly would be very much appreciated,
