I'm new to paper piecing and found a great video that might help others like me that are just learning this method. I always appreciate when people share something with me that makes my life easier.
Here is the link to making a string quilt.
This takes you to quilt blocks for each and every US state.
This is how to make a tube quilt. Uses (2) 2 1/2" strips and (1) 4 1/4" strip. Sew the two 2 1/2" strips together lengthwise. Press. Place on top of one 4 1/4" strip. Sew along both long sides. Cut triangles using the diagonal line on your 9 1/2" ruler. Ta Da!! You can get eight cuts from this one wof strip set. That will make 2 1/2 blocks. Beautiful!!

This scrappy quilt is really pretty! You foundation piece scraps of the same color, then frame it with a matching solid color. It turns out to be Quilt as you Go because you're stitching the scraps to the foundation and batting at the same time.
This quilt is called "Bottled Rainbows". Charisma posted this link.
