This week I was ready to get these blocks out and start sewing the rows together. In September I took this photo of all the blocks laid out.
Looking at this picture again reminded how easy it would be to lay a couple blocks out wrong, and never notice until rows were sewn together! I definitely don't want to do that, so my plan for finishing this quilt top up is to take it slowly and carefully!
Using my sketched out plan, I started laying out one row of blocks at a time, sewing a seam and checking again before I added another block.
It wasn't long before I had three rows completed and sewn together!
It won't take long to get this quilt top stitched up! I'm getting excited!
Sharing this scrappy rainbow project at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.
yes I do notice the area you sewed wrong, hope it wasn't hard to undo. It sure is a pretty quilt
It is coming together nicely and looking good.
Wow, that is quite a lot of work on that quilt top. I hope the picking out goes quick. Lovely design!
Coming along nicely, yes that would not be fun at all to rip these blocks! Can't wait to see the finish of it!!
I love your color choices and the design! I need to get back to making string quilts next year.
I'm excited for you, as I absolutely LOVE this quilt!!! I noticed the oops last time. However, I have a quilt that I refused to un-sew, so thought you might have done the same!
This quilt is fantastic! I bet you just love it. :)
Check the blue blocks on the right side.
Love this idea, I may have to assemble one.
What a great layout!
You are right about checking and rechecking. Nothing worse than finding its wrong at the finish. I always take plenty of photos in progress. It's turning out so nicely.
The photos do help so much. This is a beautiful design. Cant wait to see it finished. hugs, lj
It’s not too often that I see “crisp” looking scrappy string blocks. But you nailed it!! I love all the white in it. This is going to be a beauty!
Love you string star. It is turning out great.
So fun to see this project get that much closer to a quilt top! Enjoy the sewing.
You're right - slow and steady wins the race on this one. Looking forward to seeing all the blocks sewn together!
Love this one! Your design is so beautiful :)
String quilts are the best!
This is too fabulous for words! Looking forward to the finish!
So pretty! I'm a sucker for strings, but I really like this design.
Ooh, la la! Your blocks are gorgeous.
