I took a break from all other projects yesterday.  My fingertips are sore from quilting so much Sad smile always happens as I can’t stand anything between me and the needle on the underside of the quilt.  So in the meantime I got out one of the boxes of strings and started to make some pillow tops!

I am going to make two pillows and both sides will be made out of stings.  One pillow will have a large block on one side and 4 smaller blocks will make up the other side.  I haven’t decided on the second pillow – I will get done with one at a time.


I can see by looking at that box of strings that I will need to refold the strings when I get done or they will be a crumpled up mess again – don’t want that after I got them so neat!  After I got started I could see that I could make a whole big quilt top from strings – I have so many packed tight into two boxes.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Wow! I sure do like the looks of this string block. This is something so unusual for you, but I really like it.

    Looks great so far. I don’t like wearing anything on the bottom finger either and when I was finished the quilting on the Spring Bouquet my finger was ground meat lol. It is all better now and I am ready to do a little stitching here and there again on the Baltimore Blue so I can finish it.

    Aren’t strings refreshing?? They help clean out those little pieces in our stash and produce such happy results when arranged in various block patterns. Hugs, D
