Tomorrow, my grandmother turns 89, and later in the month, we celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. And a wedding anniversary. And the second annual Stash Bash. It's also my month to plan the Love circle quilt for do.Good Stitches! It's been awhile since I've made string blocks. I don't know about you, but I always seem to have a pile of string scraps lying around. Last week, I divided…

Happy Friday once again, quilt-y friends! At long last I have photos of that last quilts from the 2021 block drive. If you remember, the 2021 drive was the one where you all made string blocks that were foundation pieced directly onto the batting. With another block drive wrap up comes another map: At the same time, I wanted to do a round-up of some more string quilts that have been completed.
