    I've made the first three layouts you posted, but haven't seen the fourth layout before - you inspire me! What I like about string quilts is that I can put the ugliest fabrics together and when the quilt is done they all work together beautifully.

    I have an on-going string quilt project. I make one block using fabric from each quilt I make. I currently have 33 blocks. Eventually I'll have a memory quilt for some of my quilts. Unfortunately I didn't start doing this until I'd been quilting for a long time.

    Your quilts are great. I especially love the last one - very different and beautiful.

    All are very pretty.

    I have made lots of string quilt, am working on a QAYG string quilt now. 6" squares, not doing that again. Either bigger squares or sewing batting scraps together. In the process of making string quilts I have just made more strings. Scraps never really get used up, just different colors.

    Thanks...I might do that as I still have plenty of strings left😀

    You have made so many works of art from all those strings.
