SewConnected3 - July

This was stitches&scissors month and she asked us to make String Blocks.

"That sounds easy" I thought to myself until I looked at the tutorial link she supplied and realised they were paper pieced!!

This is new technique for me, but once I got going they were quite easy.

Each of the four blocks made were 7" square so when sewn together make a master block of 13".

The fabrics she sent were mainly Park Slope by Erin McMorris, in hues of turquoise/aqua and limey green with some orange thrown for good measure. The only stipulation was that we used the solid white fabric in all 4 sections.

I kept opposing squares the same to give a bit of symmetry, and after lots of rotating settled on the final composition.


  1. I love string quilts! That block looks great too, really fresh and zingy

  2. You didn't have to paper piece if you thought you could do it without it!! Sorry. It looks great!
