A blog about my life and quilts especially! This plaid quilt was made by me...pattern by Evelyn Sloppy in her Strings book!!
Your green strings are going to make a very pretty quilt, and a little touch of pink, or maybe another one or two, will be a great eye-catcher. So many options for the layout! ---"Love"
I love the green. I fell in love with string quilts a few years back when our guild had one as a mystery quilt. When my scraps start overflowing, I start making string blocks....Use up, re use, no waste.
Rice pudding is yummy!Nice job on the string blocks. I especially like the setting in the last photo.
love rice pudding will enjoy seeing the final layout of the strings
I made one string quilt....love doing it.Your green is fantastic!
I'm not sure I'll ever make a string quilt, but yours look great! I like the second layout wit the vertical lightning !
You must be a saint doing all these things in one day, lol. Rice pudding sounds so good but it's way too long to make. Love your green strings blocks. Love, love the first layout. It is so interesting and pleasing to the eyes, well mine anyway. ;^D It is different and fresh, and somehow, I got a vision of a garden with lettuce, string beans, carrots and beets (with pink stems) on each sides of a path. Just lovely Julie. Enjoy the rice pudding for me please? ;^)
No! Wait! It's not a path ... they are cabbages. Sorry, my mistake. (lol) ;^)
I haven't had rice pudding in years, I need to make some!
I'm impressed that you have so many green strings, Julie. It's always fun to make a bunch of blocks then play with the layout, don't you think? I wonder what layout you'll choose! Whatever it is I know it will be wonderful.
It brings out the Irish in me! Home is the best place isn't it!
Green is my favorite color. And string quilts are so fun. I love yours! I've been saving scraps for a scrappy string quilt.
It looks great, string quilts are fun. Love the layout with the blocks horizontally and the rest just triangles. Greetings
They look fantastic..... Love all the patterns..... will be hard to decide which one to choose.....
My favorite layout is the one in the last picture. You had lots of green strings and I think the pink adds pizzazz!
You amaze me with all that you get done! Love the green strings!
What pretty squares and soooo many different ways you can make the design for the quilt--will be waiting to see which combo you choose!!enjoy the moments and send me some rice pudding--di
I like all the layouts but the first one is my favorite and I may just have to steal the idea, with your permission of course. You're much more organized than I am with your strips sorted by color. I just rummage through mine until I find something that works. String quilts as so relaxing to make. I'm tired just reading about all you've done.
Soooooo, which one are you choosing? I LOVE string quilts - wonderful to use even the little bits. Good job, whichever design you choose.ElaineAdairpieces.blogspot.com
Both of those layouts are fun and very modern. That little bit of pink is perfect. It adds a spark of contrast. I really should do a string quilt some day. I love how they look.
The top setting is really cool!
Oh, my goodness, these look wonderful!! And I love that pinch of pink. : )You are a super woman if you can get all of that done on Monday and still have time to quilt. Teach me how!
LOVE the last setting and the pink just adds a bit of unexpected zing!
Love your string blocks, and I am sure you will come up with the perfect layout. I don't throw anything away, and have all my scraps from years of quilt making, but not sorted, yet. It's on the gunna do list.
So many fun ways to set them!
String quilts are just addictive! Love those greens!
I love those bits of rogue pink peeking out! I've got a string quilt in my future,because of beautiful ones like this!
