Stringalong 2019 Month 1 Linky party!

Here we go! I can't wait to see all the creative unique quilt blocks!!

Here are most of this months blocks.
In order for my quilt top to be completed in October I need to make 27 blocks a month. My plan is to tear off the paper and sew them together  in groups of 25. DONE!
My friend Linda gave me many of these 6" string blocks. I need 10 a month and will set them each month.  Here's my layout.
My setting fabric is a dark cheddar. 

If you do not have a blog or instagram and want to link up, feel free to email me a  photo and I'll add it.

  7. Love your two projects and how you've calculating what needs to be done to finish! It's wonderful to see what we can all do with strings and I certainly have enough ideas to keep me busy all year!

  8. You'll be making a lot of string blocks! I love both projects. The second one could be made larger and then cut to size [like 14" blocks or 20" lengths]? I put links for both my January blog posts about string quilts, let me know if I should take the 2nd one down, pls.

  9. These look great, Lori! I do adore the look of strings, just not so much the actual process. So I will enjoy the show!
    I especially like the top set of blocks with the slash of red down the center.

  11. Interesting to see what the quilters have chosen to use for their blocks made with strings. I did nothing as I don't have much in the line of strings. But I am considering cutting some strips off of some of my stash pieces.

  12. You are on a roll with these two beautiful projects. So many strings, so little time, but once they are started they become very addictive, lol!

  16. I love your dark cheddar for the setting. I've made a start and I've used muslin foundations. I'm going to be moving so I may fall behind but will enjoy watching everyone's progress!

  17. Everyone's pictures look great. I have jumped in on this one yet. I did manage to finish 3 large quilts and a baby quilt this month. 3 were UFOs. That's why I can't take on the strings yet. I'll be following your progress.
