Description

I would love to have these blocks assembled into a cuddly quilt top for the holidays!  They are from a swap I did on the HGTV Quilting Forum years ago... I need to do a count and see how many more I need to make for a nice lap size quilt.

12/6: This UFO is being kick started this week and I've got strings everywhere to prove it!  These blocks are 6.5" unfinished and I've decided I need 120 of them to make a 60" x 72" cuddle quilt. I found some wonderful fleece to use for backing on my last trip to Mpls./St. Paul and I'm anxious to get this one put together before Christmas.

12/23:  Well it's not going to be done before Christmas but hopefully shortly thereafter!  The flimsy pic has some some sun reflecting off the lower middle... it was way too cold to take it outside today (-19 when we woke up!).

Capetowngirl Thank you... I love string quilts!

Aren't these quilts fun to do? Each piece is different so it sure doesn't be boring. Nice job!

twistedandloose I've loved making string blocks from the start and it is amazing how great they they turn out and how hard it is to make a dent in the string bins. My favorite comfort sewing!

This is one of my favorite scrap blocks - fun sewing and each is a surprise when placed with it's mates. I believe the strips multiply in the night as the stack doesn't seem to decrease despite your sewing.

Stamdl

Sbbquilter I so agree!

Mymble
