It's Day 1 of the All About Strings Blog Hop and Giveaway

Today we begin the All About Strings Blog Hop


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.

We are all in for a treat 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.

Monday, March 25th


Have fun visiting each blog and making new friends.

They have worked hard to show us some new ideas, so be sure to thank them with

I've seen lots of beautiful things on today's blogs. It makes me want to gather up some of my many scraps and turn them into a string quilt, so much nicer than being tangled up in a bin!
