    Paintmejudy, I really like your string quilt and your avatar is pretty cool.

    Sew interesting how each person's string quilt is so unique but the same method.

    I LOVE your string quilt, the orange and black are so graphic, I like the block layout too.

    Oh, I love the way you've built this, the plain blocks really set off the string blocks

    I've done the flip and sew method on muslin and then you don't have to use batting or remove paper you sewed on. I love using up the scraps this way.

    My niece lost the baby quilt I made for her daughter & wanted me to fix this old one she found while cleaning out my mother's camper. It is pieced onto muslin and has an old tablecloth or curtain for backing. It wasn't worth remaking. Name:  Diana-old-nap-quilt.jpg

    This is my modernized & larger version. I pieced the blocks onto 6" paper squares and trimmed down before removing the paper & sewing into 10" blocks. I used scraps of cotton batting sewn together and it is machine quilted with my PC Quilter.

    I am in the process of making a couple of string quilts. They are all so cool! Have you checked out the ones in our Quilt Gallery? These need to be added to it. ( sorry Cathy) i have to tell you, the spool string quilt is sooo fascinating! It is definately on my list as the next string quilt that i will do. Keep up the good work quilters!!!

    I've started a string top using scraps fun to see diffferent fabric that go together that you would normally not think are great. Only have 10 blocks done so a way to go. Happy Quilting

    I like the effect made by having the strings perpendicular to the long edge in the dark blocks and parallel to the long edge in the light ones. (This refers to the second quilt pictured in this post.)

    Peckish your string quilt is stunning. I have only made scrap ones but I may have to try one with your approach.

    My DGSs were over and wanted to sew. I wanted to try a string block, so i showed the older one how to flip and sew. Mine was in shades of blues and i had it half done. I asked the younger one to pick out some strips for me to sew on. He picked out baseballs, dinosaurs -all novelty fabrics. So one half of the block is gramma, the other half is all Jaden!! I am leaving it that way too!

    Look at this awesome strip quilt I found (again in one of my many "ideas" folders). I know it's a little different but I think it's neat. You could just take long strips of foundation fabric & do it like a strippie.
