    Very nice nanobirdmo...I like how you have left the strips 'squiffy' and weren't tempted to straighten them all off :D

    thanks izy, i love your word, "squiffy". that's one of the things i love about string quilts. i use every string of every size, and crooked is good.
    i also don't separate my scraps into colors or values or genre. i just reach into the scrap box and pull something out. it is very freeing.

    I think scrap quilts are especially beautiful when you have a lot of white in the quilt. This one is just lovely! Great job!

    I really love that quilt! Did you cut the squares to size after the scrappy rectangles were made? It looks like a quilt you'd find on a bed in a quaint cottage by the ocean. :D

    hi barn, thanks for the kind words. this quilt was called PATHS TO PIECE in the book where i found the pattern. isn't that a great name?


    to answer your question, yes i string pieced the rectangles and trimmed to 5 x 3 3/8. then i sewed scrap triangles on both ends. then sew larger background triangles to either side and square it up. it takes 4 of these to make 1 block. it was great fun. i too love the scrappy look very much. you all have seen several of my scrap busters and plan to make many more :wink:
