In case you missed it, you can read how I was inspired to make this in a previous post HERE. Although I didn't know it at the time, the subject of the second week of Sew Scraps Along was scrappy Dresdens! Jodi at Pleasant Home linked to a tutorial at Lurline's Place, which is the same one I happened to Google when I was thinking about making my "ring." I went very random with the strings, cut the wedges shorter, and left out the points to get the effect of the inspiration photo, but the idea is essentially the same.
The quilting is just straight-line quilting between the blades, carried out to the edge, and a little wonky spiral in the center (which I did not unpick and do over, after all; we'll call it "organic").
I used the last of my Heath stash for the background and finished the hand binding during some waiting room time with my dad earlier this week.
This weekend, I'm going to pull a pile of strings in these colors and set them aside so I can make at least one scrappy string ring like this every month. By year's end, I should have enough for a quilt!
