String Blocks

So, I straightened up a bit, and pulled out this huge bucket of red strings.








I had already sewn 9 blocks and here are a few of those and 9 new ones I made today! Felt good to be at the machine.



So looks like I am making a red string quilt......didn't plan that one. Just needed some mindless sewing and strings are just the thing.

Amazing what you can construct out of a pile of strips. Looking great.

Red is a favorite color of mine and I love quilts with red in them. The string blocks look great!

great idea making a red string quilt.
are you just sewing the strips randomly together or are you sewing them on to a marked foundation first?
I have so many 1 1/2" strips this would be a great idea to just make string blocks with scrappy though....not sure I have enough red ones without cutting more fabrics up . Thats always a possibility though!

I love your red string blocks. Mindless piecing is so good for the soul.
