    It is mindless sewing. Just grab a square of muslin and give it a whirl, you don't have to wait 'till after Christmas to do one block .... come on in, the water is fine. :wink:

    :wink: I saw an idea in a book you sew strips or strings together and make your fabric then cut them into diamond shapes, I suppose you could use other shapes, It's a easier way to the old antigue string quilts by Hand unless of course you want to do it the way My Great Granny does it but takes forever!!!!

    String quilts are normally scrappy and beautiful, but you can also go with a color theme, by sorting the scraps by color. I just finished 2 fall quilts, using all fall colors and fall pattern fabric, all string sqs in the center of the quilt. Theres alot of ideas to apply with just alittle thought, and creativity in using string quilts. I've still got some other ideas.
