Scrappy String HST

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLAugust 6, 2010

I had to have seen this somewhere because I'm sure I didn't come up with it myself.....don't know where I saw it and don't know if there's a name for it. As you can imagine, there are numerous layouts. Each block is 10" finished and at this point is approx 40" x 50" .... It's hanging with the rest of the tops for me to put the border on when I get back home. @:)

Pay no attention to the date, I just finished it yesterday..DH keeps taking the batteries out of the camera. See the WW of the W????

That is awesome and very clever! It's pretty too! Great way to use up the scraps!

Have a great trip!

Thanks, Gwen. I had fun doing this one, too. Just seems like those scraps never decrease!

Beverly, You're such a glutton for punishment!

OK....you haven't mentioned the Wicked Witch of the West legs sticking out.

What a neat idea, can use up quite a lot of scrap pieces this way!

My oldest great-granddaughter asked if I would make her a quilt to leave at her mom's house so she'll have it for her visits. I showed her some of the tops I've been working on and I think she wants this one. Her half-siblings each have one from me and won't share. lol I never thought of giving her one for each household. She'll be 10 in January, so I guess the black is ok......

What a great eye you have for color & design!

I saw something like this in an old quilt book, can't remember exactly but it has the word "Lightning" in the name.

Thank you, Sylvia. There are probably a lot of zig-zag quilts out there that would look like lightning.

It's a really easy way to use leftover strips. Here's how it looked when completed.
