This string quilt was fun to put together several months ago and I enjoyed stipple quilting it today. Even though the strips are quite short (around 3½" long) its fun to see all the different fabrics that I've used over time. It took a while to put together, but I'm sure someone will find enjoyment in it and its better than just hanging around here. I'm sure I'll be on to another one before long - I can't bear to throw away even very small scraps.
Even though it's only a smallish quilt (43½" by 57½") by the time I got more than half way through I wanted to do something a little different, so I ended up doing some swirls in the blue squares
The backing is just a simple tree pattern which I think is quite cute.
So that marks the end of my productive week, a beginning with one quilt here and now ending with this one as well. In addition to balloons and strings here that makes 3 quilts to pass over next week which makes me smile.
It could be a little while before I have some more to complete, but I'm happy with those for now and I'm sure some child will be before long too.
Size: 43½" x 57½"
