I don’t know how I did it, but I’m pretty sure I accidentally deleted some comments on my last post, but wanted to take a few minutes to answer them here.
Wanda at Exuberant Color commented that she like that making string quilts is relaxing because they’re sort of mindless. And that’s exactly one of the things I like about them. If I’m a little tired at the end of the day but feel like doing a little sewing, I can make a few string blocks and not worry about accuracy and consistency. Every block is free form, unique in fabrics and sizes of strips. And they’re all pretty gorgeous!
Here’s another one that I think I deleted:
Thanks Donna! Sorry I deleted your comment!
Here’s a couple that I didn’t delete and they appear on the post, but I might as well respond to them here.
Pam; you are a very bad influence! Or a really good one!!!
BJ; so funny. I’ve never thought about it but I also have very few solids. I have a few charm packs of off white and have no recollection of when or why I bought it. I have a few pieces of white on white that I bought several years ago and never used. I’m using some now for mask linings. But I don’t think I’ve ever bought a solid color piece of fabric! Thanks for reading!
Sheila; I love scrappy quilts and have never run out of scraps! I have no idea where all these scraps keep coming from!
Regarding the tutorial, I followed a video tutorial from Missouri Star quilts that I found helpful. It shows how to do the common center strip. You can get to the video tutorial by clicking here.
Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting!
