Think Diagonal String

This 9 by 12 inch string is the first of many that I'm sewing up to use of some of those pesky useful scraps.

String borders for my Bento Box

I wanted to stop by today and show you what I've been working on lately.
Here's my version of a Bento Box and the scrappy string border I made.   The border blocks consist of 2" four patches and string blocks that were cut 1" wide.

I have more pictures and info on my blog if you'd  like to stop by and read about my journey and how I came to decide on my final design.

Have a great day.

String-y colourwash quilt sewn together

I've sewn together the string-y colourwash strips
to make a top 48 by 60 inches.
I'm thinking about a lime green border, or not.
Check my blog to see the plans for the pieced back.

Scrappy String Ring Quilt Top Finish

I'm a couple days behind in posting this finish, but here it is.  The string ring (string Dresden) quilt top is done!  

Details and more pics can be found on my blog, here.  

Thanks to String Thing Along for the motivation to keep going with this project, and for the suggestions when I started putting the blocks together to finish it.  It was very helpful, and you all rock!
