A little sewing going on

I felt like sewing 
So pulled a tin
Its like a surprise to see whats in there lol

These little 5 inch string blocks
Fun! Strings are all over the place right now
And i have a ton of them

I cut up my batting pieces
Into 5 inch squares
I gather 5 inch squares of fabric
For the back
Then i piece on top the strings
Sew and flip
Quilt as you go style
Some of these 5 inch charms probably 
Should have stayed in Vegas 

Then i sew close to the edge
About 1/8 inch in to
Staystitch them
Then flip and trim to batting and backing

Cute little blocks to play with 

Charms left to use up

Quite a little stack going

Batting ready to go


I will sew them with strips
Later once i know what i want
To make with these
I am thinking a quilted bag to carry groceries
We will see

Then i set this day of play

And added strips 
Yep a bag me thinks....
