Tiny Strings, Big Quilts
Happy weekend! I finished two scrappy quilts for Covered in Love this week. These were pieced by me back in late April during a fit of scrappy productivity using 1.5" string scraps.
I made a tutorial for these blocks and it has become pretty popular on Pinterest. I wish I knew if any one has actually made their own version!
Basically I sewed together skinny strings to make panels of warm, cool, and neutral fabric, then made HSTs from them.
I had a whole lot more blue/cool colored strings than neutral or warm, so I made one cool/neutral quilt and one hot/cold.
They each measure 60" square and I stippled them densely. I hope the finished quilts live up to the promise of the tops!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend.
Covered in Love donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 300 so far! Our block drives are back on track and July/August is the annual "Oh My Stars!" drive. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
