The String Pieced Block Can be Used in Many Projects!

Scrappy string blocks make a charming runner in whatever fabrics you wish to use. Leftovers from other projects are perfect, although you can easily cut up yardage and pre-cuts to create just the right combination.

The fabric used in the example is from Lori Holt’s Autumn Love fabric line (available here while supplies last). We love her colorful take on fall colors.

Go with colors for any season or those that work with your decor. This runner is so easy to make that you may find yourself making more than one just to play with color.

Basic string pieced blocks make up the runner. It’s super simple to make. Just arrange blocks as shown, then layer, quilt and bind. Learn more about the runner by Lori Holt here (scroll – it’s toward the end of the article).

The blocks are 8″ square once completed.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
