String Quilt



End of the bolt strings folded in quarters, cut and stitched together along with scraps of clothes from family members and other projects.
Trimmed down to 9 1/2" wide blocks. Pieced into columns and put together as a top.
Another practice sample for machine quilting!

  4. Thanks, Cat and Katy!
    The strings are anywhere between 1/2" to 1 1/2" finished. All the ones from bolt ends are less than one inch wide. All from previous projects are wider than an inch.
    Thanks for visiting!

  7. Thanks, Nifty!
    Honestly, I can not take the credit for color selection for this quilt. I picked every string that came in my hand and cut it in four. You should see this quilt from up close...
    It was all the magic of the true nature of scrap quilt!
