A new month means it is time to sew and send April's swap blocks. Here are the Scrappy String Blocks I made to send to Betty on Block Central. Betty chose "deep dark gold" for the center strips for her blocks. Swap requirements stipulate that it must be a solid or "read as a solid" fabric. I looked through my stash and did not find anything that I thought fit the color and other criteria so I bought a 1/4 yard strip of a beautiful dark gold Fusion from a nearby quilt shop. These blocks are a great way to use of those long thin strip scraps left from other projects. I had a lot of fun making these and hope Betty likes them, too. May she make a lovely quilt with all the "squishies" that will find their way to her mailbox this month. I now have a pile of envelopes to mail and need to get to the post office very soon!
