July Goal for a Lovely Finish

These blocks are from a workshop I led in February, for the Chicken River Modern Quilters in Las Vegas, New Mexico, based on my Silly String block.  They are made from practice squares and strips that I brought along for everyone to use for their first effort at cutting/sewing improvisational curves.

Silly String Blocks from Workshop

My goal for them and a lovely finish in July is to DO something with them.  I already had a tote bag project in mind, but seeing them on the wall this morning has sparked some other ideas ... so I'm not sure WHAT it will be, but it will be a finished project in July.

I think that they are just too cool to leave languishing as orphan blocks in my studio any longer.  Since it's Wednesday, I'm joining the WIP Wednesday party on Freshly Pieced.

I see a lot of potential in those blocks to be something lovely. Have fun with it Sophie.

I love them.... the spontaneity. But that's now a problem (in my mind)... the ends of the orange are still showing. They won't be possible on the finished project, so you should probably cut those right away. (They are confusing?)
Can't wait to see how your project finishes. Love your designs.

Those are so great! Good luck finishing them up.

Those are wonderful, and I think they do deserve something bigger than a tote bag. =)

I see lots of possibilities too. I am working on an improve piece that I was challenged to up a bunch of tiny string fabrics and so I will be watching to see what you do with these.
