String Top Assembled

Yesterday I got the string blocks sashed and assembled.  I’m really liking the small size of these quilts (40″ x 60″) for quick, fun construction.  I said I might use a few pins, but I didn’t use one!  The sashing was Kona Snow, cut to size, with cornerstones, and it stuck to the blocks like velcro.  I had no problems getting this together.

The result was termed, “Bright and cheerful”, which is exactly the look this customer requested, so I’m on track.  Today I’ll sandwich both quilts and get started on the quilting.

Hope you’re making good progress.

I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. What a perfect quilt for this dreary day! I’m so impressed with how straight your columns and rows line up. Mine never seem to.

  2. Another one of yours that I love.

  3. I love string quilts. The Kona Snow sashing really sets this one off. I like to use cornerstones also. Makes lining everything up super easy.
