    First quilt of 2017 completed.

Size:  943.2 KB Started making the blocks on New Years Eve . I decided to do quilt as you go . This is 54 inches square and I have made no impact at all on my scraps stash . The back is scrappy squares . I aim to make as many scrappies as I can from my enormous scrap mountain .

    beautiful scrappy
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very nice. I like string quilts and haven't made any in a couple of years. Thanks to your example, I will have to remedy that.

    Great scrappy! I have made a big Spiderweb (done), Twist and Shout (top) and a smaller Spiderweb with my leftover blocks ( sandwiched and ready for quilting)and it didn't even put a dent in my scraps. I am all scrapped out for a while.

    I really like that. So cheerful. String quilts are so much fun to make--mindless and merry ! But I know what you mean about that absence of a dent in the scrap pile. Those little scraps have reproductive organs that go into overdrive when the lights are out.

    Gorgeous! I love the colors in your quilt. I just assembled scraps for a king-size braid quilt and really hoped to make a huge dent in my scraps. Nope.

    I'm trying to keep up with Bonnie's organizing system and it seems like a race to keep up with trimming.

    I love making string blocks but the scrap pile just seems to grow. BTW your quilt is very pretty.

    No dent in the stash? That's disheartening. I'm on a buying moratorium. But I've purchased fabric twice already this year.

    Did you see MSQC did a tute on paper piecing?

    Great string quilt. I have some string blocks that I've been building from time to time somewhere in a drawer...I like the looks of your sashing between the blocks. Good luck stash busting...you're off to a good start for 2017.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
