i hope that everyone is as excited about this as i am::
first of all a big thank you to all of you for providing information and links on the flickr page :: since this is my first bee it was all really useful :: and second since this is my first bee i hope you will all forgive me in advance if i make a mistake ::
i surfed around a bit last night and found this tutorial for a block o' strings :: i really liked it in the photos and thought just to be sure that it was what i wanted i quickly made this this morning ::
i love it :: i followed the tutorial exactly and made each square 6.5 inches , so the finished size is 12" square ( i used a 1/2 inch seam allowance) ::
so here are the deets ::
i am completly fine and would prefer if everyone would make me a block from their own stash :: i have seen many vintage sheets in blogland and know that i have only a tiny bit of what is out there :: i am hoping that if you use your own stash i will get little bits of all of those great sheets i see but don't have :: luckily this thing is made with scraps so it won't use up much if any of your favorite sheets ::
if you don't have enough scraps to make this block let me know, i will happily send you some!
when sending these to me feel free to stuff it into the smallest envelope possible to save on postage :: i have an iron and am positive any wrinkles will iron out just fine::colorwise i will let each of you decide what you would like to make :: i'm not fussy, i'll just let you know this.... the crazier and wackier the color scheme, the better!
and i am not expecting more than one block from each of you, but if you want to send me more than one i would love it.... and i will send you an extra(s) in return when your month come up!!
if i've missed anything or if you have questions, please let me know.... i usually check my email at night..... happy sewing and i can't wait to hear from you :)
