{Post 1,444} Beginning of String Squares

This is the first row of a string shirt quilt I'm calling String Squares.  I was inspired by my b-friend Julie.  

Just making these as I have scraps.  Which I have a lot of, LOL!!

This is the finished width of the quilt.  I am probably going to make 3 more of this sized pieces to add to it.

The white on the right end is the sun coming through the window.

In other news, my Glory Bound top is pieced.  Now on to the pressing, quilting, and binding.  This is 64" x 80".  I will be selling this pattern in my Etsy shop later.  My store name is ShelbyStitcher (no space).

So it looks like you add the sashing as you go. Great idea to not have to do it at the end. Love it!
