Today I finished a pile of string blocks. A few months ago - I can't remember exactly when - I joined the It's A String Thing Challenge over on Stacey's blog. The button is over in my sidebar to the right. We were to make one string quilt a month and donate it to our favorite charity. I made this block a couple of months ago but wasn't quite sure I liked the colors so I put it aside.
Then I found a stack of bright fabrics that I cut up for a set of string blocks. Most of the strips are cut at 1 1/2" but there are others that are varying widths.
I think there are enough blocks in the above photo for a quilt, so I started on blocks for a second string quilt. They are a bit like potato chips...you can't make just one. I like the strong diagonal lines.
These are a lot of fun and pretty fast to make.
