Joining the Fun ~ My Diamond String Blocks





Hello!

I have just joined in this fun String Thing Along!


I love scrappy quilts,

Strings are my kind of thing.

The blocks above are some I collected in 2010.
This was a swap on the old, now defunct,  Block Central Forum.
I made a lot of friends and quilts on this forum and
hope to do the same here on the String Thing Along.


For these blocks we each chose our own color for the center strip 
and followed this tutorial ... 


I love the scrap patterns on this site.
I chose green for my center strips.
I love all the scrappy greens in these blocks and each one reminds me of the friend who made them.
I have 56 of these string blocks and they are not sewn together yet.
That needs to change.
I need to get sewing the top together.

I also have a big box of strings that needs some pressing and piecing.

Thanks to Vickie @ More Stars In Comanche for leaving a thread trail 
to this string thing along fun.

Thanks to Brenda for hosting and letting me join in.

Thanks to all who have posted all the eye popping string candy and how-tos.

I am hoping to have a pretty green Diamond String Quilt to show you soon!

Have a happy quilty day ... :) Pat
