    Terrific Tutorial. I love my scrap quilts and this is a great one. I played with it already, but then put it away do "finish" a boatload of UFO's first. However, one can use this for a Leader/Ender and have a quilt top in no time at all.

    I just tried your block this afternoon. I am very pleased with the two blocks that I made--after finally tracking down my container of odd sized strips. Thanks for a great tutorial!

    Thank You for the tutorial. Yesterday it rained all day and I played with strings all day. Fun project.

    Hi guys....I'm wondering if anyone has an estimate of how much fabric I'll need for the "main color"? I'm getting ready to start, but wanted to make sure I had enough for the center triangle. If I'm making a baby quilt......40" X 60" or 40" X 40"......how many center triangles do I need? thanks!

    Angelia, thanks for posting this tute. I recently raided my light strings for a Bonnie Hunter quilt and realized how many dark strings I have. This is perfect for an upcoming retreat and I can get it prepped.

    I was lucky yesterday. I went to an estate sale and got two garbage size bags of strings for $3.00. Now i am sorting lights/darks and ironing. After lunch i can start sewing, can't wait.
    I was thinking wouldn't this be a fun project for a small group. Everyone bring their scraps and machines and sew all day. What a nice variety we woud get. Angelia, thank You.

    Thank you for the great instructions and photos to support! Love the quilt! I'm gathering (already!) quite the assortment of scraps and leftover 5" squares... I've been wondering what to do with them - now I know! LOL

    It is an equilateral triangle so it would be 60 degrees.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    This baby ended up being king sized!!

    She's finished and ready to be quilted!! I made the mistake of laying the partially completed top on our bed and fell in love!! We really don't need another quilt but I can't let this one go! Thank you so much for the wonderful tute! I used ultra light weight fusible interfacing for the foundation (Fabricland had bolts of it on sale for a ridiculously low price. It was 20 inches wide and I used almost 18 yards!!)

    Oh and I should add that I put out a call to our sewing group and was given a lot!! narrow strips and scraps. So happy to make something out of them. The next one will be a community quilt for our guild outreach program.

    Thank you for the instructions and ideas on using different sizes.

    GingerK what a beautiful quilt. The idea of light fusible web as a foundation is a good idea.

    I have lots of strings. Maybe I will start with a small one and see how it goes.

    This is a wonderful tutorial. Thanks so much for sharing your techniques with all of us. Can't wait to get started on this and as a leader-ender project, like someone else said, this will be perfect.
