Earlier I showed you a picture of some string pieced diamonds I had made. Here is the photo again to jog your memory!
If you would like to join in and make a few, here's a quick easy string piecing tutorial.
Lay one strip centered across the width of your diamond - be sure it covers the widest points!
Continue sewing strips onto your paper shape until the entire shape is cover and resembles this:
You can now gently remove the paper from the back of the diamond shape. I generally leave the papers on till I get a pile of them - then take them and sit in my nice comfy chair in the living room and work on a stack at a time while dear hubbie falls asleep in front of the TV! LOL
Make as many shapes as you need to complete your project. At this point, I'm not quite sure what I will make. I just felt like sewing something mindless today. I get like that sometimes! I hope this helps everyone that asked me on Face Book how to do this and also helps answer some of the questions I received via email. If not - drop me a line and I'll help you!
Last year I made a string pieced twin size quilt. I'll have to dig that out and post a picture of it for you!
Enjoy the tutorial and share it with your friends!
