Worked on Two String Quilts Today!

I made 4 7 1/2" squares today that will eventually be a 14 1/2" block. The small squares have a diagonal section that is made up of 8 or 9 scrappy strips on a muslin foundation. The other two corners are solid. There are many ways to assemble this block, so I'll wait until they're all done to decide on a pattern. But I'm leaning towards a Hugs and Kisses design. The second quilt is one I started quite a while ago, but have a long way to go. It's the Quilt of Valor pattern made up of rectangles with a black center string, using light weight non-woven innerfacing as a foundation. I made one more block for it today. Stacey, I love your Organized Color Strings! After I finish with these 2 scrappy string quilts, I'd love to do one with a color theme. I love the fact that you're using phone book pages as your foundation, but I'm not sure if I'm ready for the mess. ;-) Happy Stringin' everyone! Eileen S Spokane Valley, WA
