Another Phone Book Quilt

It happens to me time after time.  When I teach or demonstrate, I end up with the beginnings of another project.

Today I presented a workshop to the Pamlico River Quilters Guild in Washington, NC.  The ladies had admired what I called my "Phone Book Quilt", a quilt inspired by the book String Quilt Revival by Virginia Baker and Barbara Sanders.  Here's my quilt.
For today's meeting, I made up some new sample blocks.  This time I chose to use batiks.  Here is one block, trimmed, with a stack of phone books squares ready to go.
And here are the first eight blocks completed, to give a better idea of what this will look like.
I just LOVE string quilts!  They are a fun way to use all sorts of left-overs!!

I just love string quilts too. Your blocks are really fun. I have that book too and need to make something from it pretty soon!

I love them too. Haven't every used the phone book pages...I bet they tear out easily.
