Skinny Strings - February 2012

How about another string quilt block for February? This block is wide, 55" wide x 6" high. The finished quilt will be 55" wide. How tall the quilt is depends on how many people make a block! Maybe we'll have enough for 2 quilts.

Directions: Cut strips 1.25" x any length. Piece them together lengthwise so that you have a length of 56" or so. Fabric recipe: anything goes! (as you can see in the photo above). Sew the strips together as shown above. It helps to press each strip as it's added. (Press first, then open the seam and press again. This keeps your seam nice and straight.) Seven strips will be just about right. Have fun!

This will be a truly dazzling scrap string quilt! The variety of fabrics will be impressive, that's for sure.
