Another Checkmark on the List


Green strings are done.  This quilt started as a stack of leftover string blocks.  Most of those came from extra fabric leftover from men's shirt quilts.  That flimsy didn't seem quite big enough to make a quilt, so I dug deeper and found some crumbs. 
The back was also stretched out with some of the extra green checked fabric from the inner border.
I also added a new tab at the top for finished quilts and added this quilt to the list of finishes for 2015.  Now I'm off to see if I can add another quilt to the finished list for this year.

String quilts seem to lend themselves to being "man quilts". Congratulations on getting another quilt done.

Wow, two finishes in one week! You've made lots of progress. I keep meaning to create a tab for my finishes in a year but so far it hasn't happened. Something else to add to my To Do list!

What a good use of every inch of fabric to produce this quilt! Nice work!

Congrats on another finish! You are really moving along. Does this one have a home? It's a great quilt for a guy.
