July string blocks for Sarah

Queen Sarah asked for sting blocks.  I love string blocks!  This is my first time making them without a foundation, but her trick of using a 12 1/2" square ruler worked great.  Here are my 2 blocks, untrimmed as requested.

Sarah asked about some of the projects that these scraps came from.  There are scraps here from the wall hanging I made for my grandparents' 60th anniversary, scraps from 4 wedding quilts celebrating 5 college friends' marriages, a piece from the quilt I made my son when he was born, and something from my first project using a zipper.

Can't wait to see your finished quilt!  String quilts are so bright and fun!
