All About Strings Blog Hop


Welcome!All About Strings Blog Hop

Today is the first day of the Blog Hop, and I am so pleased that you have stopped by to visit.

There will be lots of different ideas about using strings in your quilts. But I mainly use mine to make blocks.

This one was a gift for a friend who just became a foster parent. She has a three year old little boy, Eli, who is all smiles every time you meet him.

With a new granddaughter coming this year, I had to dig out my pink strings to make a little welcoming quilt.

But my favorite use of strings was making this bag.

Using all selvage strings makes for a fun and interesting tote.

Thanks again for stopping by. And thanks to Carla from Creatin the Sticks for hosting this fun blog hop. Be sure to stop by the other blogs during this week.
