Oh Scrap! : Strings

Making all of these donation quilts, I end up with a lot of scraps.  I try to use them up as often as I can.  For the RWB block drive, I like to turn those scraps into string blocks.

I made these six 10.5" squares this week.

I have also received a few blocks in the mail.  I love how the blocks look so different and represent each person's scraps.  Once I get more completed, I will see what designs I can create with the blocks I have.  If need be, I will just make more blocks and adjust the colors I use in my blocks....

I certainly have enough scraps!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  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! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

I like the interest the blocks with the bright blue adds to the RWB string blocks. The patterns one can make with string blocks are endless. Each combination is lovely. I like where you are going with these strings!

Red white and blue strings are a great use of scraps! Should make a nice summer quilt.

Love your red string blocks, are you using paper or a muslin to sew them to?

I love string blocks! Something about them is just so appealing. What kind of foundation do you sew yours onto? It will be fun to see how you use these. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

I've never seen such a striking R,W, & B quilt, good job you!

You are using really narrower string. I think they look great with all the colors. Keep plugging away. Maybe you'll run through all the reds and blues. (We are always making white so I doubt the white will run out!)

Very fun, scrappy string blocks. Those teal strips really lighten up the red, white and blue, it's a fun addition to the base colors for something different.

Beautiful patriotic looking strings, Cynthia!

All the strings work well together, don't they?!!
