String quilt Love

Making quilts NEVER gets old.

It's an exciting ADVENTURE every time!

Even when I AM making a BOY quilt.
Boy quilts are a bit of a challenge for me!
I love cute. pink. and Sweet.
Those things DO NOT describe this quilt!
;)

But BOYS need quilts too!!!

This quilt will be given to a high school graduate
at my church.

Gotta love a stringy. scrappy. FUN quilt!!!

Blocks were made using an old sheet for foundation.
Strips/scraps were added to the triangle foundations and trimmed.
Cream Solid triangle was added to the string triangle to make 
8 1/4" half square triangles.
Put it all together with a border.
VOILA!

  2. It may not be pink, but it still cute and sweet. In a boyish kind of way :)

  9. I don't think quilter/quiltmaker does justice to you. You are a rejuvenator of fabric!!!
    You gave new life to little skinny strips that would have been left to die (forgive the dramatic effect).

  11. That is such a great layout, I love the diagonal motion of the quilt. somehow it looks like water flowing.
