Red string spools

This is a good one for using up strings and squares - first the strings, to make the string blocks - these can be any size you like, though the wider the strings, the larger you may want the blocks to be.  I then simply added corners to the blocks (you could do this with triangles or with squares, using the sew on the diagonal method) to create a kind of snowblall block. Set together, these produce the spool effect. Very simple!

What it uses: strings, any size squares


  1. Definitely going to make this one. I have some orphan string blocks hanging around and now they're going to have a home!
