Looks fabulous Candice, think I will make one for you even if I'm not part of your hive :-)
Wow, Candice, this is going to be so much fun! I love learning new techniques and I have never done any string blocks before, so I am really looking forward to playing with this. Thanks for all the great tutorials and inspiration photos. You've done all the work, so now sit back and enjoy being a Queen!
Wow!! I love this. String quilts are one of my favorites... and then you add a star to the mix! Wonderful.
Sewhappy Thank you so much Sue - that would be fabulous. I'll have a quilt made by friends from both near and far.
I love this variation of the scrappy string block! I'm going to have to try this.
Wow - that is amazing. I love the salvage adds. Very colorful and creative block~!
Candice, I have your block all ready for the mail but I just have to ask: Did you get a bit of a lump where the side rectangular chevrons join with the center white block? I did everything I could to tame that lump - pressed seams open, steamed, starched, etc. - but it is still there and it's bugging me! If you have any tips please let me know!
Terrysim unfortunately yes. On one of my sides I ended up with a lump and no matter how I ironed it is still there. The other side was fine? So please don't worry about it as I am sure it will be okay. And thank you. Looking forward to seeing your block.
OK, thanks for the reassurance. I have the block under my cutting mat now, hoping it will flatten out a bit! I hope that when you quilt it all the bumpy [laces will get smoothed out. I'll take a photo and get it in the mail soon!
This block may be in my very near future. Love it!
I love the scrappiness of this. May have to make one soon!
I just love the block!
Phew! Made it there by the deadline!
Terryt your block is gorgeous. Wow I love that. Sure looks tedious!! Very nice.
Yeah! So glad it got there safe and sound. Enjoy!!!
These are all so interesting. You will have a great quilt when it is done.
I love, love this block. But I am confused. Does it not matter which way strips are going? Some blocks angle in towards center...others are opposite..? Just love the colors in these blocks!
Conniharns I did my blocks with the chevrons pointing into the star, but the tutorial was pointing outwards, and I forgot to mention this to my hive. So I have a selection of both
They all look fantastic together. What a lovely quilt you will have
Beautiful block! I love 'stringy blocks'. Hope I can work one of these in my near future! Will love seeing the completed block!
WOW!! This is going to be beautifully colorful. I'm loving it!!!
Ooooh, I love seeing them as a group. Absolutely terrific!!!
