A few months ago, I got an itch to make some string diamonds, after seeing this instagram post by Ramonarose.
Strings are always fun to work with, and I happen to have an abundance of them. It's funny how that happens. And after fourteen full blocks (which is 56 rectangles worth), a dent has not been made.
That's okay! There are more blocks to make, and this has me itching to make another string project when I finish the diamonds. I love them! Each rectangle (quarter block) is 10.5" x 5.5" unfinished, and most strings are 1.25" or less wide. There are a few wider strings for variety.
It's so colorful and it makes me happy every time I make a block (or more realistically, a stack of blocks).
