I made the fall colored blocks, pieced using phone book pages for foundations:
Last, but not least, I had a little fun with triangles. Included in this part of the lesson was how to use the 60 degree line on a regular ruler to draw out a pattern for an equilateral triangle if you don't have a triangle ruler. Here's where I started out.
None of these ideas were new or earth shattering, but I wanted to show people ways to relax and play with their scraps. The guild has members there of all different ability levels, so some had done strip or string piecing before and some had not. I'd like to free people from the idea that they always have to have a pattern or a kit before they can get started. Just have fun!
Enough of strips and strings for a while. On to something new.
