Strings

This week I finished two construction-themed baby quilts (pictures coming!), and started a project making throw pillow covers from a vintage tablecloth.  That stalled because I didn’t have the fabric I wanted for the backs, so I ordered some (sorry, Stash!).  While waiting for that, I started some string blocks using the trimmings of dragonfly batik from the back of the Pinwheels.  Yes, some of the pansy fabric got in there, too.  This will be another baby quilt, with the blocks set to make zig zags.  I have enough of the batik left for the backing, too.  Yum!

Hope your projects are progressing nicely.

  1. Love your string quilts and they inspire me. In fact I have on my list to make one with the black center that you recently made.

  2. String quilts are great. Pretty quick to construct, de-stash (and yes we need to add to it at time) and a great gift. I look forward to seeing your vintage pillows!

  3. Such beautiful colors! Stash says they forgive you! :}

  4. I love what you do with your strips.
