More String Quilts

I have been digging into my string bin and is busy making a few more string quilts. Blue is my favorite color and my blue scrap box is overflowing with strings. I made this Rectangle String Quilt using Mary's free pattern here.
 These string blocks went a lot faster than my normal square string blocks.
 Blue backing.
I started this red, white and blue string quilt long before I started the previous blue string quilt which is now quilted too. Here I am busy adding a solid blue border.
 This is another string quilt I am working on...this is a wild quilt. Every piece of scrap is going in this quilt regardless of what color it is.
 I quilted my daughter's batik string quilt. She wanted leaves on her quilt.
 
 Scrappy backing.
 Remember my half string quilt blocks?...it is an oversized queen quilt. I am working on the binding and it feels like I am never going to get this one done.
 
Hoping you all have wonderful week and are having fun with your quilting...sewing, quilting or just relaxing with a quilting book or reading a quilting blog.
Until next time,
Millie

Your string quilts are great. I think it's string fever all around. I've made a few in the past couple of weeks. They are quick, fun but the scraps never go away....LOL

Beautiful, beautiful quilts. I have made a few string blocks but I want to make something that looks like yours. How did you do the non-square blocks?

What is the pattern name of the string quilt you made for your daughter with the batiks? I saw an antique quilt with a very similar pattern which I would like to duplicate. Beautiful work!
