It's been a very busy month, trying to get myself set up for the winter, but I also managed to get this fun project done...
I've been thinking about what I could do with this collection of tiny strings, and this fun idea came to me!
I had more than enough of the shortest/tiniest scrap strings to make two sets of 12 crayons.
Shhhhh...don't tell them yet.
If you have a huge collection of scrap strings, you could also make them into really long crayons - lap quilt size, stitched side by side.
How awesome would that be!

This quilted up so quick, (I got both of them done in one afternoon) - and that's even counting all the thread changes I made to quilt each crayon with a matching thread.
Yes - I do sometimes machine quilt.
The pillow back panels next & then the binding.
I'm loving that sunshine!
I took lots of pictures to process for the tutorial, including the basics of layering, basting, quilting & binding.
Seemed a perfect project to use for those details, as they're the same for quilts of any size.
