    Box of Strings Quilt Along!

    We have a very talented QB member, Angelina NR who generously shared a tutorial for a really awesome quilt called Box of Strings. Here is a link to her tutorial including a picture of her quilt. Really awesome!!! Kudos, Angelina!!

    Several QB members were so excited we decided we want to make our own version of Box of Strings quilt.


    https://www.quiltingboard.com/tutori...s-t295413.html

    This will be a Quilt Along, much like the ones for Bonnie Hunter's mystery and other similar projects. The other really cool thing about this is we don't have to mail anything to anyone and there are no deadlines!!!




    We will post pictures and encourage one another as we make our blocks. This is going to be really fun! Jump in! This is going to be a blast!

    Now that I have ( finally) finished sorting scraps and getting my sewing room as organized as is possible at this point I am ready to start another scrap quilt. The Sticks and Stones quilt turned out great so I’m motivated to try another- this one truly appeals to my style. So, I am all for participating in a new sew along.
    Yea!
    Thanks for coming up with the idea.and boy, I Love the quilt!
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Yeah! I was certainly inspired by AngelinaNR's quilt and I know others were as well. I hope others find this thread and jump in.

    Do you think you'll go with black triangles or use another color? If so, what other color are you thinking of using?

    I have drawn out the pattern on graph paper, cut foundation papers and washed my black but I have to finish quilting and binding a wallhanging before I can start. I thought about using a different triangle colour but black seems the best for contrast with my scraps.

    Jane, what a great idea offering the members to do a sew along with the fantastic pattern that Angelina so generously shared with us!

    I'm not home now, but would love to join in on this when I get back to town. I'm wanting to make some baby quilts.....so what do you guys think would be a good color for the triangle? In one case, I know it's a girl.....in the other case, I don't know. Any suggestions? Thanks for organizing this jclinganrey ....will be fun and Angelina NR, thanks for the tutorial!

    Dark purple would look good. Red would be bright.

    You could any color as long it is on the darker color value so that you can keep the dimensional rectangle effect - dark blue, dark green, dark burgandy, dark red or even dark gray if you want to give it a modern twist

    I'm enjoying reading about the color variations that one could use, the options for this is endless. I just cut 94 black triangles, which is only about half of what we need for the size of the quilt Angelina made. Taking a break then will stat pulling out scraps that will need to be ironed.

    Jane, thank you for organizing this quilt-along, and Angelia, thanks for sharing that tutorial! I have strings, and a large amount of midnight blue that I bought for a quilt that didn't pan out. This would be a great use for them.

    Lots of good ideas about other possible colors. I might go with a very dark blue. I think I might try one block with dark blue and one with black & see which one I like better although my dark blue is 'right next door' to black so I'm anxious to get your opinions.

    I also am thinking of setting my rows so that the triangles run horizontally instead of vertically. Just some thoughts swirling around in my brain - - -

    I may join in, I have a lot of strings! Whenever I've had something longer than 3.5" but narrower than 1.5" it gets tossed into a gallon jar. I think I've started on my third one, and they are packed tight.

    I was thinking of you when this thread was started and wondering if you were going to jump in on the fun!

    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.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.
