I just cannot stop!!

Really it is like a bag of chips, once you start you cannot stop.

What you ask?

String blocks!

I sent a pile of 20 to our bee Mama and will receive 20 different ones in return.


That is not enough for a quilt…….

I know, I know I told you I was going to make blocks with my new dot fabrics; however, I had these piles of scraps calling for me to make more string blocks.

What’s a girl to do?

So, sorry that is what I am doing this weekend. And I better get to work!

Happy Sewing Everyone!


  1. Look at your wonderful sewing space....this is going to be an adorable quilt and calorie free!

  2. Jane I'm like you - once I start on string blocks I get addicted. If I've got something else to do I have to do it first or it won't get done! blessings, marlene

  3. Very cool!!! I love all the bright colors!

  4. Aren't they fun? I love 'stringin', a relaxing kind of sewing. You have some lovely strips.

  5. Happy sewing too!!!! They look great.

  6. OOOOOH, I love this!! Great projects that also uses your scraps...are perfect. Lovely quilt for this spring, so bright and cheerie.

  7. Keep on making them Jane...they do make lovely quilts..

  8. I'm right there with ya baby!! I LOVE string quilts.

  9. Beautiful strings.

    Have you seen the pattern for the potato chip bag?


  10. Love string blocks. They're addictive, easy, fun, and fast to make. And they're terrific blocks for charity quilts too.

  11. Aren't these fun?? I absolutely love them...

  12. Your blocks are looking great! I know the feeling of not being able to stop once you start stringing. I have a couple string quilts going right now. I keep adding to them when I feel like sewing but not really concentrating on anything difficult.

  13. I've made one string block quilt, and I was like you: I couldn't stop until they were all done. Great way to use up scraps.

  14. Good afternoon, Jane,
    I've been corrected final projects all day, as our school term ended this week. I would so much rather be at my sewing machine!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie


I always love to hear your thoughts!
