Design wall

The strings are getting sewn together as soon as I have any time. VBG. I thought I had 70 out there getting sewn, but 68 came back. (I did not sew these-I taught others how to sew them and gave them my scraps to use.) I suspect I missplaced my 2 samples.
You can see the triangle madness that are not sewn into their top on the bottom. Hang in there, next week I may have them ALL together to show you. I'm telling you they look great. I had to take it off the wall to fix a spot, (part of the ripping I mentioned last night) so used the wall to lay this one out.
I have some mending to do, thanks Angela, a quilt in the frame to finish and binding to do.
Lynn is a bit sleep deprived so I'll start sewing until she wakes up.
Check out Judy's design wall list if you'd like to see what others are working on this week.

Those triangle squares are going to be stunning. You must be the most patient person ever to make a whole quilt of blocks like those.

Pretty string blocks!
Can't wait to see your triangle madness top!

The triangle madness is incredible. I will have to keep an eye out for the finished blocks.

I like your strings, especially since you figured out how to get them sewn. How big are they? I am doing occasional strings that are 10.5" but only have 10 done.

I LOVE string quilts. I believe that I have a enough scraps to make several! Getting the red, white & blue bug myself. Hmm.....
