String Quilt Progress

I have gotten all of the blocks pieced and trimmed. I started piecing the flowers.
















 Some of them are strings.


Some of them are crumbs. I have ironed the freezer paper on the back, but haven't turned and starched them. It's a little tricky making sure that I position the points far enough away from seams so that the points can be sharp.







While there are only 28 flowers, I'm going to have an awful lot of leaves, 56, and circles, 84, to applique.

 Hop on over to Patchwork Times to check out the other design walls.

  1. I've never done string-pieced blocks but I hear Bonnie Hunter's new mystery has them in it and I'm doing that so I guess I'll get some practice.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
