Stone Soup Strings


These are the blocks I made with all those 'noodles' I made from the gifted fabrics from the participants of the Stone Soup Challenge.  They are all thinking 'soup', but my brain works another way.  I saw the Stone that starts it all.


Of course my su-purr-visor thru every step was right there when it came time to lay them all out.


I made 36 blocks, but then I have this thing about length v.s. width whether it is a wall hanging or a quilt.  So this is set 6 across and 5 down for a 30" x 35" size wallhanging.  I will do something with the other blocks.  Now I have to piece the back to get this sandwiched and quilted.

There are a lot of string QALs going on across several social media right now.  A lot of patterns and great way to use up scraps.
