"Strings on Display" or "Strings 1"
This is my first ever strings quilt! Here's a close up:
I described how I made this quilt top in my first few strings reports - as I worked on them on the weekends. At this point I haven't made a pattern but you can make this easily if you read through my posts. I show diagrams, cutting, and various other tips.
Introduction to what I was doing:
First update - the top was baby quilt size
Second update - the top was lap quilt size
Next update - the top was twin size
Last update - Strings 1 top was finished and I introduced plans for Strings 2 and Strings 3
I quilted this one with a wavy line using my walking foot on my machine. I wasn't really thrilled with the job I did, but it's done. And I learned. And both are important to me.
I made a pieced backing using a piece of low volume print - and added in two strips of navy calico type florals that I had. These big quilts really use a lot of fabric on the backs! I don't notice it so much on the front since I'm using little pieces!
Have a wonderful day, wherever this blog post finds you reading!
