Glad I have a "map"

    I thought I would put a few string blocks on the design wall to see how they looked.  I was sure glad I made up a sketch as a map for the layout!   It is very easy to get lost when putting these up because there are so many possibilities for their placement.
But it is so much fun seeing it come alive.
   During my cleaning time, I discovered about 5 more yards of the stained fabric that I am using for a base!  Help....I may have to do another one of these to use it up.
   Happy stitching.

Those are just wonderful. I don't think I could design a map, but your doing so has made for a gorgeous coming together! I may have to keep yours for use for myself, but I'm helpless, my strings right now are all mixed up. :>)--but that works too. Always love seeing what you are doing!

(I just put some old sheets with tears in them into my stack to cut backings for strings--gotta use what's available, huh!)

That's beautiful, the colors are so rich. I keep a seperate stash bag for fabric that I use for string blocks, old sheets mostly.

I love how you've pre-planned your blocks to get the effect of coloured squares on point!
