speaking of string quilts…

It’s time to use up some scraps, so here’s my latest -

String diamonds! (thanks to Max, who unearthed a pile of rectangular pieces of paper while pulling all the fabric off my shelves!)

    Kids are so helpful, aren’t they? High five to Max for “encouraging” you to make this – it’s beautiful.

    what a great variation on the regular square. These would be neat with strings on one side and solid on the other, too!

    love it! How big were the rectangles? I was digging through my scrap bins the other night, and this would be perfect!

    Why didn’t I think of this! Fantastic variation! I’ll be trying this out next time I need to use up scraps for sure.

    My 9 month doesn’t have access to my fabric, but does to BOOKS, so I spend the day re-picking them up since all he likes to do is clear the shelf. Great start on the quilt.

    This would be a great use for money mailers, which are 5.5 x 8.5!

    I might almost like the diamond look more. But I love the squares also!

    I am just getting knitting and have noticed you do a lot of it. I always enjoy seeing what you create (quilting and otherwise). I am curious as to what kind of yarn you prefer and why. If you get a minute I would love to hear your thoughts!

    Thanks,

    i like following your blog. and I love this version of a string quilt! Even more I would like to know HOW you got the pieced strips so uniform
    in matching up. I apparently dont have enough sense to do this on my own. Any Help would be appreciated
