    Love all the string quilts. The various settings are what make them so attractive. I love to make string blocks, very relaxing, no-brainer sewing.

    Here's one of mine.

    I was really pleased with this one and the triangles were really easy to line up in columns.

    String Quilt as the border

    Enlarged the applique pattern from a wall hanging to twin size and used a string border made from jelly rolls.

    I started making string blocks on muslin squares. If i sew them together and then use regular batting and backing, is this going to be too heavy and the seams too bulky?

    Thank you for this thread. I have wondered what a string quilt was and now I know.

    DorisMary...LOVE your triangle string...and the border is fantastic! Do you make the square and then cut to triangles and your placement into rows? (Did that make sense? lol)

    Have made lots of strings but never thought to "line them down",,,,very interesting thought.....will be thinking all day about this one.....

    Wow, they are all so pretty. Almost have my first string done. Sad story, used all my huge drawer full of flannel scraps, including several stray ends from bindings over the years. Then I decided to make it in the basket weave style, set on the diagonal, as seen in some to the tutes. So now I need 6 more squares. I went to Joann's yesterday and bought a few small amounts of flannel to blend. So much for using all my scraps

    I made one a long time ago when I first started quilting. The edges are a bit wavy, but my granddaughter loved it. It's in my WebShots album and I'm going to try to post it from there.
