There have been questions regarding how I made the Tula Strings blocks and border. Unfortunately, I’m not very good at keeping notes and drawings, so I will do my best to recreate the pattern. First, I laid out the various colors of shot cottons from my stash, then pulled out coordinating Tula prints. One and one half inch strips were cut – solids and prints.
The strips were paper pieced onto a 10 1/2″ square of paper, beginning with a solid strip in the center. Was the paper necessary? For me it was because the shot cottons definitely lend themselves to wonky sewn strips. And there was starch – quite a bit of starch! It was also pleasing that when pieced, the seams matched pretty darn close to perfect!
A 6 1/2″ inch square was then cut on point from each block of strips.
After much arranging and sewing together the blocks, a border was most definitely needed. The leftover corners were cut into triangles, then solids added to make flying geese.
Tula Strings was now a quilt!
The prints are all out of print Tula Pink and a few were used in more than one colorway.
There were many, many triangle cuts that have been made into a quilt. Stay tuned for an upcoming post!
