Q(uilting) & Answer- Learn to make an easy string block

String piecing


As I say in the video.

This is crazy, folks.

Take care of yourselves. Let’s all try to keep social distance so that we won’t have to do this self-isolating any longer than we have to.


If you are sitting home with a bunch of fabric and need a creative prompt, try some string piecing. This simple 5″ block will give you a basic idea of Foundation Paper Piecing and what it means to literally sew fabric to paper. You get a little more stability and precision, and you just might be ready to make a whole quilt this way!


I had to upload the video before I could finish my own project, but I plan to make a fluffy floor pillow for my husband’s evening tv watching. His is pretty flat, so I’m making it large (25″ square) and extra fluffy by using two inserts.
