    These blocks are so fun and liberating. No measuring, no matching, just playing in your scraps. I need to sew about 1,000 more to get rid of all my scraps, but here's what I was able to get done today.

    Yes, I would like to know too. Hubby is totally confused as to why I am saving little pieces of fabric. I think a strip quilt like this would be a great way to use them. I also am thinking about what I think they call a "crumb" quilt...guess you need a foundation for that too???

    Cool, Chele! I need to join you. My grandson claimed the last quilt I made with string blocks. What size block are you creating. I'll be right with you. :lol:

    Those are beautiful. I love to make string blocks. One of the first things I teach new students is string blocks to make a pillow.

    I would have known it was yours even if I hadn't seen your name on the post. It has your bright colors! Great job. I like it and will gladly accept it when you are done. I am not too proud to accept other people's work as gifts! :lol:

    Really beautiful! I'm saving scraps, too, with the idea that it will be fun to put things together that weren't overly planned.

    I use cheap muslin for the stabilizer..some use paper. I cut them 13 1/2 inches and when done, square them to 12 1/2.

    Oh my!!! You were on a mission, Chele! This is really going to be a fun quilt when it is finished. Great bright colors to work with in the winter.
