Stringing Along

Happy Friday folks, we made it another week deeper into the summer! It's officially hot and humid outside, not good weather for anybody. 

Some of you might remember the tutorial I posted several months ago for a scrap-busting block that used 2.5" and 1.5" strings.  The main block is the one in the quilt below, with the black border, and the bonus blocks made the quilt above with the blue border. 

It's a great way to use up a whole bunch of strings in a hurry and make cozy scrap quilt in the process! These two are bound for the hospital with Covered in Love.

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 600 so far! The July/August drive is going on now.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. The snuggle factor is 11/10 on these two! I love that you can get two completely different designs from making the blocks :)

  2. Lovely string quilts. Thanks for inspiring. Hope you can stay fairly cool.

  3. I love string quilts. These two are partiularly nice. They look so cozy and perfect to snuggle in.

  4. More beautiful quilts for CiL. You have really been busy this summer with your sewing. Two more families will cherish these quilts & the fact that they were made with love.
    Sundae looks so content on the window sill.

  5. I absolutely LOVE both of these quilts, Kat!! I'm sure the recipient families will, too.

  6. Love your string quilts! Just beautiful!
