Here is my string quilt again.
I’m somewhat surprised that I had questions about how to do this so here you go. Save this if it’s something you might want to refer to in the future – bookmark it, put it in a folder, set it aside somehow – or be prepared to go back to find this post.
I used phone book pages and cut them 5-1/2″ square.
I save all strips and strings just for this reason.
Lay your first strip right side up diagonally.
Lay the second strip right sides together with the first and stitch. Reduce your stitch length so it perforates the paper.
Fold the strip out and press. Repeat over and over until the paper is covered.
Turn the block over and trim right along the edge of the paper.
Remove the paper. (Blurry picture???) Voila! One string block!
Each block is sometimes homely unless you plan color placement but that’s why I said this is a utilitarian quilt.
