Friday Finish: Donation Blocks


On this snowy day today I finished a dozen donation string blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love.

Oh, the memories! I know from which project every string came.

After a while it dawned on me to use my walking foot, and that worked very well.

And I got to use my new Christmas gift 14″ turntable cutting board. It has foam on the back, and the base really stayed in place while I turned the top.

Kat specified that you should use a cat to press your blocks. These should certainly be flat enough! (He wants to be let out or fed or, really, for me to make the weather warmer. I would if I could, Yuri!)
