Guess this could be called a "string along". LOL

Jane I think that is a terrific idea.
I'm committed to a watermelon quilt top but I bet I could squeeze in some of these blocks so I don't get so bored with the other, as I have lots and lots of strips and strings already cut. I also have lots of black.
Great idea!!!! Thanks for sharing your ideas all.

I’m going to follow but not start right away. I haven’t been quilting long so don’t have a lot of scraps plus I’m working on a project that’s almost possessed me. I’m very focused on this quilt & just want to work on it right now.

I’m going to join in, but not until I get back to the sewing room with all the strips precut into bins. LOL, could probably make 3 quilts with no problem at all. It really seems like a fun project to fit in around finishing UFO’s. Although, I don’t know, may need to buy a dark for the triangles. Will see when we get back to the stash.

Fantastic! I have already made 4 blocks by following Angelina's tutorial. Where do we go to follow along with the quilt along? What a fun idea

I will be reading this post for sure even if I can't start this quilt just now. I am working (very slowly) on 2 reversible quilts right now, plus, I do not have enough strings yet. I am so interested in this pattern but holding my hands in my back to make sure they do not start another quilt before I finish those that are in progress..

Yesterday I managed to cut my 180 (4 1/2” X 8 1/2” ) foundations and all 180 center triangles. I might manage to make a couple blocks today. I really need to get the quilt that’s loaded up quilted and I have a hockey quilt prepped ( jerseys all deconstructed) ready to start quilt construction— those two have to come before really diving too far into this project. But I can take the time to put one or two together & see how it goes.

Please count me in too. Made the triangle template and made one block to see how it would go. Already have my strings, a year or so ago I got fed up (read overrun) with my scrap problem so I took the time to just cut them into strips, didn't really measure just eyeball cut. I had already sorted all scraps by color so keeping the strings/strips color coordinated was easy. I just stuffed them into zippered bags.
( I have a tiny OCD problem about some things). Have cut all but 20 or so of the 8.5 x 4.5 foundations, and when I get the triangles cut, watch out.
