Stringing Along

These string blocks have been hanging around in the background for ages and ages.  Every so often it is fun to pull out and sew mindlessly.  Someday they may turn into a quilt!  It looks like I need some more orange.  I think there is some laundry to be folder first.  Ah Sunday.  The girls want to make cookies and we are out of butter.  Ryan wants to go to the library.  Somewhere in there though, there are plenty of strings waiting to be sewn into more blocks.

String blocks on are on my RSC list for next year. I really like how yours are made with two colors. Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

I love your plan with the dark center that gives such a great shape to your quilt when you lay the blocks out together! I'm going to have to remember that!

My suggestion would be to hold onto these until Bonnie Hunter's mystery clues are finished. She is sure to have some string pieced components! LOL!

Your string blocks are great! Very pretty! They are going to make a spectacular quilt.
I can't imagine trying to get any sewing done with kids, there are so many things you need to do with them! I barely get any sewing done here and I just have animals and they are on MY schedule!

Duh! It took me a while to see that the black strip is the center of the block and the pales are the other half. It's magic when they come together as whole colorful squares, an on point checkerboard. Happy Thanksgiving to all your family.
