Convergence... Scrappy Strings

Okay,
My convergence quilt centre is now in one piece ......
What to do with it now.
I'll have to put my thinking cap on.
I want to make this into an AUSSIE HERO QUILT 
But to work out how to make it longer..

This is where I got my inspiration from --- http://adventuresinquiltingandsailing.blogspot.com/2010/04/ricky-timms-convergence-quilt-workshop.html 
It was a great help with the photos and instructions.



While I have been doing my stitching over the last couple of weeks I have been making string blocks.
These will be made into a string half square triangle block for CHARITY.
I will be working on these for a while.


These will be something I'll be showing my group and hopefully they will be joining  in too.

This was what I showed them on a weekend away.
EASY AND EFFECTIVE

Well done on the convergence top and borders will make it a good Aussie Hero quilt.
The strings always make fabulous quilts and I like the easy block done with HSTs.
Hope Hubby had a great birthday..

Your convergence quilt looks wonderful Jo, will make a great Aussie hero quilt. The scrappy strings look great too, like how you have made them into half square triangles.
