just a little sewing

 Just playing with these blocks!!  Lori at Humble quilts made a quilt like this, and she said I could borrow her idea...this has been a couple (few) years back, LOL!!!  I was just laying out what I have and seeing where to go next.  Super fun!!
 Here is the block.  Hers use a different size strip, and frankly, I like hers better...but I will play with these until I finally decide on what to do.
 So if you have cut off corners from making star blocks, sometimes you just have to sew them together and see what you get!!  Maybe you, like me, have a ton of saved triangles..so this is an idea!
I made a blue berry pie...it is delicious!!!




Have a great day!

I love those string blocks, especially when the photo is rotated to the star blocks face downward and the strings point skyward! Great way to use up extra little friendship star blocks (does anyone really have extras of those cuties?) Are those your homegrown blueberries? Ours are at least 2-3 weeks from ripening, and we're hoping the black bear that has been hanging around the area doesn't get to them before we do. Your pie looks delicious!

Love blocks like that! It would be fun to use orphan blocks that way too.... ( I think)

That's a great string block combined with the star. Looks like fun.

Testing, one two three, hope my comment appears in your email! LOL in desperation to reduce the scrap pile I started sewing HST together into the same little four patch! Its just one of my Rainbow scrappy challenge blocks. Your pie looks yummy and so do your log cabin blocks.

I like the log cabin blocks you are making (inspired by Lori). Nice patriotic colors.

I wish I were there for a piece of the pie. Even better would be peach pie.

I remember when you started making these blocks. I was wondering how come you never showed us the quilt. Now I know. The blocks look good together.
I've been playing with teeny tiny little triangles lately too. Check my blog to see the end result. I so love it.
Enjoy the plaid. ;^) ♥

Oooooh! Your stars and strings blocks are fabulous! Makes me wish I had more red, white and blue in my stash! :-)
Mmmmmm....pie! :-)

Love that patriotic design you got from Lori. :)
IMO there is always a use for leftover triangles. They are so much fun to play with!
Oh, the pie looks good!

Cute blocks, but I want that pie! I've got the ice cream to go with it.....

Blueberry pie! My favorite, my husband doesn't eat it so I haven't baked one since the kids left....1999 can that be??
Oh love the red, white, and blue quilt...it is gonna be a beauty.
Looking forward to the next group of "Liberty" blocks :0)
Happy Sewing

I love that quilt! Yours will look great any way you make it.
Yum! Blueberry pie. That isn't on my current diet though.:(
