    What is the name of this block?

    I have only seen this block once before and now have a chance to quilt for a local charity. I would like to see what others have done or if others have suggestions.

    When I click on go advanced, not seeing anything about manage attachments. Just shows me additional options about my signature, parse links and subscription info.

    When I add pictures, I just scroll down after I finish the message part and you see a heading for "Manage Attachments" that is the one for adding pictures. Keep trying. Be sure to click on "upload" after you have identified the picture you want through browsing. Good luck.
    God Bless,

    I looked on-line and that is exactly what this block is. Thank you. Now...just need to figure out what to stitch on this block.

    It looks like you sew 7 diff strips of fabrics together then cut triangle out the strip sets . Make several different strips of 7 material then mix them up and sew them together to make a block . My guess . Hope it helps .

    That would work. I usually am using scraps, so I sew my strips to a thin muslin backing. I usually start in the center and work out both ways so I'm sewing two strips at a time, then press, and add two more. I press my backing piece diagonally one way, so I have a "starting line" on the base piece. I sew my strips on diagonally.
    Have fun experimenting. I don't think you can make a string block "wrong"!
    God Bless,

    How about a spiral? I've seen that on squares and it is really interesting.

    string quilts are always beautiful, no matter what colors you use.

    I have also heard of it being called a spiderweb block.
