    Great looking string block Roseanne! Wish my scraps were long enough for that. Somehow, all I have are little bits of all shapes, which is why I sew them together to make one big block

    I thought that’s what those were when I saw them on IG! I have plans, but we’ll have to see if I get there or not.

    Hello Roseanne, Like you, I do not remember ever making a string block. I went and browsed her sight. The one thing that confused me is there have been so many patterns used for these quilts, do they accept all blocks that have been posted in the past or just the ones posted for today? I think it is wonderful that you are working on a great cause and are learning a new method! Have a fabulous day!

    I always miss Kat’s string block months because we are traveling, but I’ve participated in several of the other months’ block drives. It’s nice to be able to contribute some blocks and not be responsible for sending a whole quilt top (although some people do). I understand your frustration with string blocks. I have the same trouble with wonky blocks. Something in my brain wants to straighten the wonky.

  5. Thanks for the info. Great blocks, by the way — not so stressful, now that you’ve made a few, right? At least you are kind when asking for those pieces of muslin (please, thank you) – haha! You two make a good team!

  6. I’m with Laura’s comment…plus, this method is one of my go-tos when I just want to sew for relaxation…not limited to ‘strings’ shapes, however.

    I’ve been meaning to make a few of these to send to Kat, too! Yours look great, Roseanne!

  8. I’ve been planning to make a couple of blocks for this string block drive. You’ll see that on my To-Do list this Tuesday. Yours turned out great! Have a wonderful day, Mary.

  9. I love string blocks — I participated last year so I’ll get a few of blocks made this weekend before our company arrives!

  10. I love how within the first month we quilters are already sewing comfort quilts and blocks. 🙂 I also love string quilts and my box of strings is overflowing, so along with an RSC quilt of strings this year, I may just have to make a top for Kat… Your block is really a cool twist on a strings block. Like you, I’m not so good with random and I almost never have just the right length of a string argh!

    I have so many strings that I need to use one day – I keep saying one day – I don’t know when that day will be !

    I bet it was lots of fun sewing up those random bits of old fabric! And they will be loved not trashed…the best part! 🙂

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
