Stringpiecing Workshop

 We had a great day yesterday during the Stringpiecing Workshop. I don't think there is anything more fun than using up some of the leftover fabrics from previous projects.
Guilt-free quilting for sure!
 No big fabric purchases for this one!
 So you really feel good about yourself making this quilt!
 Everyone came with their strips all nicely packaged in tubs and bags.

 But you can see that by the end of the day, the strings seemed to be multiplying...all over the table!
Stringpiecing is so relaxing, no matching, no worrying, just sew, sew, sew...Everyone got lots done!
 We had a full house....the classroom I use isn't all that big, so we arrange things the best way we can!
 Makes for some cozy sewing and lots of great conversation!
This is just one type of stringpiecing. There are many more, including one I demonstrate in a tutorial you will find along the right side of my blog.
 You can use any size of strings, so the more the merrier!
One student had to leave early, so I didn't get pix of her and her blocks. 
This is what it looks like at my house when I stringpiece! 

Stringpiecing is great on so many levels, but I think one of the best things about it is that any level of quilter can stringpiece!  It is great to do when you feel like sewing, but don't want to think too much, or have to be so careful. I have taught other stringpiecing classes, including the Spiderweb Stringpiecing, and Corner the Stringpiecing Market, but love this basic block!

These quilts are wonderful. I have been looking for a good "sew-without-thinking" project and this might just fit the bill!!!

I love string piecing - a great way to use scraps in a stress free manner. You can get a lot made really quickly too as you dont spend time worrying about what goes with what or what should go where. Looks like you had a great day!
