    String Pieced Projects

    Both were strip pieced onto removable paper, then machine quilted "in the ditch" after adding batting and backing
    Squares and joining squares in the "quilt as you go" method. So much fun!

    Gorgeous! Great work!
    As much as I hate it, my seam ripper is my best friend.

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

    Yours look great! I love string blocks.

    Very nice job on the quilts. I see you even pieced some of your strips. I recognize some of the fabrics as I have scraps of the same ones.

    wow. I've got to try that. I have alot to learn in quilting. So many things I've not tried yet because still low on notions. But, I will. I'm in God's favor and in the new year, I will achieve great things and quilts.

    I love the look of string quilts.

    Love the soft colors and the sashing of the first one and the red and greens of the second one.

    Both are very nicely done scrappy quilt. Like the pale aqua you used in the sashing. Kind of calm down the bright strips.

    I love this pattern for using up scraps such as ends of bindings. Your variable widths make it even more interesting.
