Quilt With Us

finished the binding on this one this morning. I'm not sure if I want to do another string quilt or not. It's a good way to use up scraps of fabric strips, but it seems somewhat limiting design wise.. at least to me, it does. I have seen a pic somewhere of a string quilt where the string blocks were alternated with solid blocks, but not sure if I want to try it or not. Something to ponder about later - still more quilts waiting to be finished.

I second the commaent about www.quiltville.com There are lots of ideas there for scrap quilts, too. I'm doing the string X for a QOV project.
Yours is beautiful.

I love your string quilt. I have seen them made with solid black sashing strips in between which looked really nice too. But I always figure these are not meant to be show quilts; they are meant to use up scraps & to have something quick to toss over ourselves for those times we want to quick cat nap on the sofa so the simpler the construction the better!

This one is beautiful and studying all of the scraps in it would keep a senior busy for a long time.........patterns may even remind them of a lovely memory, etc. I have never tried one - don't know that I have enough scraps as yet........but I'm working on it!
