String Quilt

I finished a string quilt today.
The 1 1/2" strips were hand me downs.
Not sure I would have put these colors together....
but it's a SCRAP quilt.
The very BEST kind.
;)

These little strips of cotton
make me so happy!

As soon as I finished the last seam...
I ran to my daughter's room to see if it FIT!!

It DOES!

 IF I had to choose a favorite KIND of quilt....
The string quilt would be IT!!!!
;)

what's your favorite?

This is all I had left when I was done.

So happy to use ALMOST ALL of the scraps!!
My scrap bucket can't fit any MORE!!!

  1. Now if I hadn't just used up all my strings in a HST string block quilt, you would have me running to play with this. What a lovely little girl's bed quilt - looks like woven ribbons.

  2. A very happy quilt, looks great on your daughters bed. I really like 16 patch quilts currently, something satisfying about locking seams when you join the blocks.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this. I had in my mind that string quilts have to be on the diagonal. I had never thought to put them in a rail fence type layout. :)

  4. Lovely string quilt. scrappy..... yes favourite kind too!!!
    hm.... probably my favourite quilt block would be HST, but that's not to say other blocks aren't fabulous as well. i find the HST is so versatile; you can make so many different quilts out of a HST.
