    These blocks are so fun and liberating. No measuring, no matching, just playing in your scraps. I need to sew about 1,000 more to get rid of all my scraps, but here's what I was able to get done today.

    Yes, I would like to know too. Hubby is totally confused as to why I am saving little pieces of fabric. I think a strip quilt like this would be a great way to use them. I also am thinking about what I think they call a "crumb" quilt...guess you need a foundation for that too???

    Cool, Chele! I need to join you. My grandson claimed the last quilt I made with string blocks. What size block are you creating. I'll be right with you. :lol:
