More String blocks

I sent 20 HeartString blocks off yesterday and started working on an older UFO. I had the muslin foundations and larger triangles for this quilt cut but hadn’t made any of the blocks yet. I’ve got 20 made so far and need 80 which will give me a quilt that is 61×76.

I also got the Hourglass String quilt loaded and will start quilting tomorrow. I’ve been playing with some Line Dancing ideas but not sure what I’m going to use yet.

I have 3 baby quilts ready to ship off to my Mom along with the top I just quilted for her. They’ll all be donated to Catholic Charities. Two of them count as UFO finishes for my Stashbuster group.


  1. I love all of the string quilts. I might have to try one someday.

    Wanted to stop by and tell you, I will be purchasing fabric for the pattern you gave me a few months ago. The school colors one? I hope to shop Saturday am and start cutting by the afternoon! I can’t wait to do it!

  2. The blocks are looking great Mary, you work so fast! What size are they? I like how each of your blocks are half solid fabric. Others I have seen are all strips.


  3. How striking those blocks look with the larger, mixed colored HST’s–a little less busy.

    Your mom will be happy to see the completed quilts, I’m sure. Good for you getting them loaded and done so quickly.

  4. I really like this set with the single fabric on one half. I think I’ll do some like this to donate locally. It would help bust some of lefotver bits from FQs that have had a couple squares cut from them.

  5. these string blocks are beautiful – as I am working on new projects, I am also cutting strips so I can get to piecing some of these soon
