Oh Scrap! : String Cleaning

On the night before Christmas....
I hope to be doing a little more string cleaning!

When I do find time around the holiday bustle to sew, I have been working on piecing the rows on this triangle quilt.  Four rows are completed with six more to go.

And because I can't seem to work on just one project at a time, I am also sewing the leftover fabrics into a stack of these blocks.  A little bit of "String Cleaning" you could say!

I hope all of you are celebrating the holidays with lots of family and friends and making cherished memories.  May there be Peace and Love for all!


Now it is time for you to share your scrap projects.  Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

    Love the triangles and the strings. I love to see your string quilts.

    Do you have a set size you make your string blocks? You do so many so I would guess that you standardize so they will work together.
    I hope to get back to sewing tomorrow.
    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas and thanks for your blog throughout the year. Your triangles are an inspiration, lovely warm colours. With your strings, do you use any kind of foundation?

    I started string blocks with the soscrappy challenge but haven't worked on them for 4 or 5 months now. This has been making me sad. I have 2 more colors that I want to do then start putting them together quilt-as-you-go.
    Sure hoping to get started on that again very soon.

    Hope you had a very happy holiday and got in some relaxing stitching time too.

    Both beautiful projects - I particularly like the triangles. A belated Merry Christmas to you and yours and wishes for a wonderfully scrappy New Year!
