A String Finish

My 1st UFO Finish of June is done as I've turned this partial set of Autumn String Blocks
into a complete set of 48 9.5" unfinished blocks for Heartstrings Quilt Project. I made the 1st 20 blocks in 2009 for a group project using green middle strings instead of the usual blue or red.
 I found enough of the the teal polka dot in my stash to make 28 more blocks. I had to use my flash to take these pictures as our sunshine has been fleeting lately and I wanted to show off the pretty fabrics.
I really like the rich range of colors in this set...
 and I think the teal center strings stand out nicely.
These blocks will be sent to a coordinator who will assemble them and make arrangements for quilting. I have to admit I toyed with the idea of keeping this one for myself, but I have other fall UFOs as well as future quilts that I've bought fabric for. And, there will always be more pretty scraps to use!

This is UFO Finish #28 for 2013 and puts me 48 blocks closer to my goal of 365 blocks for Heartstrings Quilt Project this year. I'm linking up to Building Blocks Tuesday@Quilter in the Closet.


  1. The teal really does look rich with the other fall colors. Very pretty.

  2. Очень красивая цветовая гамма. Мне нравится. Особенно украсил цвет морской воды.

  3. I don't know how you can bear to part with it - scrappy loveliness. I love it.

  4. I love how the quilt is coming together and really love the colours.

  5. This is looking great! I love the teal :)

  6. Wow! That teal just pulls the whole quilt together in such an amazing way!

  7. Wonderful result! Colours after my own heart.

  8. I love the autumnal colors in your string blocks ... :)Pat
