string quilt progress!!

I now have 25 blocks for my string quilt done now!! I only need a total of 80. Just a few more to go!:) I am LOVING it!! I love looking at all the fabric I've used. I think it will be even better when sewn together!!! I can't wait to get to that. Hope you have a great day! Oh yes, and Carrie if you are out there I would love to talk to you about the oh cherry oh quilt. If you want to email me I would love to chat!:)

  3. Don't you just love this pattern. It's such a great way to use up scraps and turns out so colorful and awesome. Besides log cabin, this is probably one of my favorite quilts to do. Love the soft colors in yours.

  13. This looks great. I have some scraps collected that I want to start one of these. Do you just sew the strips together and cut it to a square shape? If so sounds easy enough! Can't wait to see it all done. :)
