Mary's string quilt

I mentioned sharing the string block idea with my once a month charity group-and the next time we met, Mary brought a finished string quilt in. She did a great job-though these are of course strips and not really strings! I still need to finish stitching binding on and set up to quilt..later today/tonight as I mentioned in my last post. It was go spend time with my granddaughter earlier today and then I clicked around the stash ring and caught up with everyone. whew. On some I was way behind in reading, on others, nothing new posted since the last time I visited. Now I can stay off line for long enough to do something quilty! It's raining and cold today-but I still need to take our dog for a walk ...and it seems right now works for her.
Hope everyone gets to have some great quality quilting time this weekend.

This quilt is the cutest! The X's and O's formed by the directions of the strips are absolutely awesome! Great idea!

That is a really neat setting! The x's and o's are like hugs and kisses.
Very nice.

Love the X/O pattern formed by the string blocks. I'll have to remember that when I start setting heartstings blocks together. Maybe use "red" blocks for the Xs and "blue" blocks for the Os. Something to think about anyway.

Bet that grandbaby is growing like a weed. :-)

cute quilt! I didn't realize there was a difference between strips and strings.

It's a mixture of Ton's Xs and Os Take the Leap Challenge and Heartstrings. Combining 2 great ideas.

This is a nice way to arrange the strings, as everyone else just said. I too find myself very behind reading some blogs, while being able to keep up with others. I know part of it is bloglines being fickle, but part of it might be how that particular blog fits in the alphabet.

I love this block arrangement. Mary did a good job on the top, Cher. Think we can all take a break and chat one of these days?

Hi Cher, what a fun string quilt. I love that there are so many possibilities when you lay out the blocks. And I don't think it really matters that they are strips instead of strings. It all seems to work well.
I found a great antique string baby quilt that I will post tomorrow..blogger was dropping things today. Hugs for you and Baby Alice, Finn
