Big strings

Thanks to LeeAnn, Helen, Leisa, and V. for the "ugly" string blocks
I found in my mailbox this week.
I'll post a picture this weekend of all of them on my design wall.

Here's a little string quilt inspiration: My friend Yvonne with her 50th birthday quilt, with string blocks submitted by her friends, and handquilting by Yvonne and more friends. Visit my blog for the details.

I love Yvonne's quilt Brenda! And I think it is probably a great one to show us 'stringers', because I (for one)tend to think of string quilts as being pieced diagonally across the foundation.
Not sure why it doesn't occur to me to piece strings straight across from left to right..but I will now! Thanks for sharing this one.
