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????

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

Beverly, You're such a glutton for punishment! 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.
