Ahhh, string quilts. I love them! Just pile up the strings, don't think and just sew. You can try to clean out that string box, but we know that will never happen, strings just make more strings.
This is a string quilt I made back in January.
I measured the white for this one so the white "sashing" would be consistent, otherwise whatever piece I grabbed was sewn in.
Log Cabin blocks are my favorite for using up strings, I love the colors and traditional lay out. I used all one and a half strips for this one and happily made a major dent in my white pile.
My most recent finish is a wall hanging. I had seen a pen and watercolor drawing that inspired me to make this:
I sewed the strings together, pretty much making a curved piece of fabric, drew a pattern and cut him out, then appliqued him to the white backing. He is easily my favorite string quilt and I'm already thinking about making more string "fabric".
The Festival of Strings is going on right now over at Stitched in Color, I hope you'll check it out and be inspired.
