Stringing Along

I started a new quilt this weekend. Its a scrappy string quilt. Basically you start with a square of paper, glue a thin strip of the same fabric in the middle of each block, then add on random sized strips, pressing as you go. I went with the black center and the rest is random fabric from various projects...quilts by me and my brothers, hooter hider fabric, clothing projects, Christmas aprons, etc. I might have to make more blocks because otherwise it will only be 32" by 40" without borders. It would make a good baby quilt but I think it would be better as a lap or bed quilt. Hmmm.
