    New Scrappy String Quilt

    Here is my latest string quilt. I used dryer sheets as my foundation so the blocks were 6"x9". The black strip was in the middle and when they were all sewn together they made a lovely diamond pattern. This is my favorite string quilt that I have made. I finished the back with a soft fleece. So here I try to post a picture??? No picture...it said it was uploading picture...please waite....how long....20 min.? So close but I just can't get this figured out. Well, got a picture but it is too big , how do you make them smaller? Gee now the picture is the right size....just magic I guess.

    Great fabric placements, and the black gives it richness.

    Love the black diamond. Tried paper foundation for a crumb block and didn't like it. Will need to remember to try the dryer sheets. TFS

    Oh! How neat!! I use the dryer sheets also, but always "square them up" first. I like how you used the whole sheet.
    Too many quilts...not enough time!

    Love it. the back looks so soft and cuddly
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
