Thing 1


"String Thing 1" is back from Shari the Quilter, bound and Finished!  Well, almost.  I still have to add a label.


I took it outdoors for the photo shoot, as we had some sunshine. 


Here's a shot of the border where you can see the fun quilting that Shari did.


The back.

This one is called Thing 1, as it is the first one finished from The Great Spring String Fling of 2009.  (Try saying that one 3 times fast!)  You can read all about this one here.  I have more string quilts in progress that you can see here and here.  


Some detail shots.




I'm very happy with this quilt.  It's really a memory quilt, as I have old and new scraps from other quilts that I've made, including some charity quilts, pillowcases I made for my kids, grandkids and friends, strings from my friends (especially the ones at the retreat), and other fun things.   They all bring back good memories!

  10. I love it. As I am working on my strip quilt with the 1 1/2 inch strips, I am thinking....I should do a string quilt. There is still a lot of fabric I can cut into. I have been inspired! I really want to have less old/ugly/small bits and chunks of fabric!
