Strings

Everywhere I look in the sewing room I see strings.  I haven't worked on these blocks as much as I'd like but I do have 16 blocks made.

I tried 2 different layouts.  Number 1....



I'm not real fond of this.  


Number 2....



Oh yeah...this one is a keeper.  Now I just need to make more blocks.  This will not be a short term project.  This is going to take a while but I think it will be worth it.

I'm linking up with Lori at Humble Quilts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

P.S. Another day of below zero weather.  We haven't had mail delivery in 4 days.

String blocks actually make good leaser/enders! I'm finding that out by personal experience. What size are they? Looks great! Stay warm!!

I love No. 2 also--that is my favorite setting--["Ojo Di Dios" one of the very first quilts my Grand-mere taught me to make --stitched on muslin squares]
Loving your colors so rich and pretty nice work hugs,Julierose

I love both, but if I had to pick one it would be #2. Thanks for sharing.

These blocks can be addictive. Yours look great.

Your number two setting is one of my favorites. It will make a fabulous quilt.

Well, I guess I would agree with you since I am setting mine like your number two version too! Your stings just sing!
