String Along Update

It has been A while since I shared progress on this project. That is because there hasn’t been any! I finally got back to it this weekend. My goal is to make ten per month. This is my current stack of 60.

I use “ugly” fabrics as my foundation and flip and sew strings from my dad’s shirts onto the foundation.

Then I trim the excess to the size of the foundation.

Oops! Looks like I had a little hitchhiker scrap. 😄

I want this quilt done before Christmas. It will be a gift to myself. Have a great day!

Linking up with Humble Quilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Hi Katy! HAHA to the hitchhiker scrap. I was looking all over for the ugly fabric . . . but I get it. That’s a great idea. You don’t find it to be too heavy when you layer batting and a non-ugly backing fabric? Maybe you select a thinner batting, too. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I love your blocks! String quilts are my favorite. About to start a new one for a future Grand DIL (well, I’m keeping my fingers crossed as I like her so much!)

  7. Really nice string blocks! Special to use your Dad’s shirts.
