Strings - sort of

The last post of mine was my Pineapple quilt and I have finished a few more blocks, would like to have a few more completed before posting another photo.

I am also working on a quilt for my daughter, not strictly string quilting, but made with 2 1/2" strips, I need to really finish this within a week and start on two string quilts which I have been wanting to make for some time.

Not a brilliant shot but I have a small room for my quilting and just can't get far enough away from the display wall! I have another 28 quarter blocks to make (52 on the wall) then sashing and borders, these blocks already on the wall need trimming and re-arranging so not necessarily the final arrangement.

I have been looking at the String Along block of the month from Material Obsession close off is tomorrow and I need to decide whether to go for it or not, I normally like bright colours but as the info says this quilt has an earthy look to it so I am undecided. A few more hours left to make a decision!!!

What a fun pattern. I made a very small quilt with this block pattern once but it was all fused. I always intended to sew one. Thanks for the inspirational reminder.

Love this pattern and your bright, colorful fabrics. I'm happier when I'm playing with bright colors, too.

Oh I love everything about your quilt for your daughter - the bento box design and all the fabrics!!
I know just what you mean about a small work space, I have a maze to move through in my sewing area right now :)

Thank you everyone for your welcome comments it's always good to have feedback from fellow quilters.
Ann - should we watch out for a large quilt using this block from you?
Kira, I am pleased that I'm not alone in manoeuvring around various obstacles in a small space!!
