Strings and Furrows

Yet another string quilt! I do love them.

This one is a simple arrangement of string blocks and alternating white/beige HSTs that create furrows across the quilt.





I pieced the back from scrap 5" squares, and I used the trimmings from the back to make the binding.








I love the look of the scrappy binding, but with all those seams (thick!thick!thick!), it took me quite a while to hand sew it down to the back!


I love all the things you can find in a scrappy quilt.

A fox and a hedgehog

Scooby Doo!


Pastas and valentines

Vegetable names, sock monkeys, and ruby slippers



I'm still sewing lots of string blocks, so there will be more string quilts to come!

I'm linking with Jo's Country Junction String ChallengeFiber Tuesday 164 at The Quilting Room with Mel, and Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  3. I really like this quilt, especially the way that the diagonals of the HST blocks run at right angles to the strings. Brilliant!

    1. I looked at both ways of arranging them, but I felt like everything was running towards the corner with them at the same angle. This felt more stable.

      Thanks for visiting!

  4. Wonderful string quilt! I need me to do one of these soon! It's on the list! The back and binding are ambitious!

  5. I really like the way you alternated the string blocks with the HST blocks. With the beige and white alternating it gives a nice secondary pattern. Love that you made it reversible with the patches on the back.
