It's All About Strings Blog Hop and Giveaway Day 2

Strings in quilting are generally strips of fabric that are 2 1/2" or narrower.
String quilts are named for the strips of fabric that are used to make a quilt.

Yesterday was a great beginning as we were treated to 
some incredible string eye candy sewing projects.



We are all in for a treat again today as we 
hop around to see some new and fresh ideas
for strings.

All week I've invited bloggers to inspire us with string sewing projects and quilts.

I'm excited to introduce today's line-up of bloggers.

Love string quilts, especially today's tulips. They are a real twist on using the strings to create a flower, and I think it's worth doing.
