Something from Nothing - a String Quilt

mmm not bad, considering the bin of strings I started with!  Of course, the bin is still full.  The blocks are sewn on phone book pages.  These blocks are 7.25 in. unfinished.  I don't mind removing the paper at all - it's a pleasant, mindless project.

Some of the blocks were getting kinda murky and dull-looking so I started sewing in some skinny, jazzy bright colors on the dark side.  Problem solved.

Great looking blocks.
I have a tote full of blocks like these somewhere. :)

I like way the light strings emphasize the dark ones. (Or vice versa!)

Oh, these are lovely! I love the jazzy pops that you added, too!

Very pretty! I have a bin of strings too.

The little pops of color look great in these blocks! Why is it that strings seem to multiply?? My bins are full again haha!

I love string quilts and have 6 drawers devoted to various colors of strips. It just seems hard to get to making them because of too many other projects! What a dilemma! I will get back to them, though, I'm sure.
