I’m finally getting caught up on my string quilt blocks. As I previously posted, I already had two 4-patch blocks made up: Each string patch measures 6 inches, and each block measures 11-1/2 inches (unfinished). I’ve been saving up “used” dryer sheets for months and have saved up a binful. Should have enough for a couple of string quilts!
So far I’ve made an additional 20 patches. These are so much fun to make … and easy! No seams to match, no tiny pieces to patch … just a straight stitch to zip through the sewing machine while I watch TV.
I love using the dryer sheets. Not only are the sheets lightweight but they also smell good. They don’t need to be torn out like paper, and I’m recycling, which is good for the environment.
Still need to make 58 more patches! Maybe I can make a bigger dent in my stash of novelty print strings:
Until next time … keep on quilting!
