Stringy Variation


I love, love, love this quilt. I came to me in November when I was thinking about what I could do with all the strips I saved. I've been saving them for awhile. Here's one previous reference about them.

Anyway, I decided to sort them by color and immediately starting sewing them together. When I was away at Quilt Camp this past weekend, I put the half blocks together and started sewing and trimming and sewing some more. I'll admit I was a bit disappointed that all that sewing in November only amounted to a small wall hanging. But it's gorgeous and I know exactly what I'm going to do with it. I also know that I must make another one - one that's big enough for my bed!

This quilt measures 45X36 and gives me my first 3,240 points for the 2011 Stashbusting Contest.

I love those string blocks. I'm in a blog challenge where we do a different color or theme scrap quilt each month, and the one I'm doing for this month uses blue string blocks. I'm going to make a couple extra each month to do a quilt similar to yours. Just love it!
