Monday Making

I played with strings this week.
Don't you LOVE string quilts?

They are definitely one of my favorite kinds of quilts.

This nine patch of strings was made using 6" squares
and 6" half square triangles I made using a foundation.
Sometimes I use a foundation and sometimes I don't.

My old phone book contains the perfect foundation paper.
I hope it never runs out!

Here's a small section of a quilt top that is still waiting to be quilted.

What are YOU making this week??


  1. Yep -- phone books are great. I made a point of saving a couple we got as they were being phased out. I wish they were the bigger ones but they work great for strings. I keep thinking I want to do another string quilt but haven't committed yet. Yours is interesting. Much more involved then what I might do.

  2. Love your strippy nine patch variation block. They are so cheerful. I sometimes use a foundation and sometimes I do not. Phone book pages are a great idea. Have a wonderful week, Beth.

  3. Your string blocks are lovely, some very pretty fabrics here!

  4. The blocks are really neat! Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt, happy stitching!

  5. A very fun scrap busting block. So colorful!

  6. I do love string quilts and love the colors in yours! I haven't seen a phone book in years and have been using used dryer sheets with mine.

  7. Yes, I LOVE string quilts. Yours looks great. Love all those bright colors.

  8. Hi,

  9. Great looking string blocks. They're making a nice quilt!
