    I like your quilt. It is one of my favorite blocks to make. My kids will choose a string quilt before any pieced quilt I make no matter how many hours I put in it. They all request rag quilts too. Easy for me! I keep a pile of paper by my sewing machine and sew a strip block when I get bored of what I'm sewing on. I use MSQC ten inch papers. They are much more useful then first glance. The lines are there to keep the strips straight no matter the widths starting in the center out. It is super easy to remove too. It's inexpensive. I've been using out of the same package for the last couple years.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I love string quilts. I use muslin or ugly fabric as my foundation. Great quilt!

    It's gorgeous! I love it! You have some beautiful fabrics in there. May I ask what size your blocks are, and what width you used for your strips?

    I did the same thing many, many years ago in every blue and yellow fabric imaginable. Mine to worked and I really like yours. Thanks for sharing as I had completely forgotten about that quilt that was a gift--didn't receive a thank you but it is what it is.
    Have a good day. Karen

    Fantastic quilt! I couldn't stop looking at it! While paper piecing is a good way to work with the biases, you also have to remove all that paper which is a pain. I think using the wash away stabilizer is a good way to avoid having to remove the paper. I might try that idea.
