There were three quilts hanging over the frame yesterday waiting for a turn at quilting. This one was the smallest, so it got to go first. It started as a drawer of extra string and crumb blocks from my men's shirts phase. The homespuns for the borders were really stretchy to work with. I am thinking about blue for the binding. As soon as I get it sewn on I will be able to settle in for some calm hand sewing time. When I wasn't quilting this yesterday I got lots of laundry done, took Ryan to play practice and puttered around in the sewing room. So nice to have a calm and peaceful weekend. The men folk are off to Dungeons and Dragons this afternoon and Anna has a date. That will just leave Sydney and I at home.
It may be from leftovers but it's still a really nice quilt. Your layout made leftovers special!
I just love string quilts! So fun to make also! Enjoy your slow stitching
Love relaxing weekends! A date? Wow, she is really growing up fast. Enjoy your binding time today. I will be tilling a garden =).
love, love scrappy quilts.
What a cozy quilt that will be! Enjoy your binding time. It's one of my favorite parts of the quilting process!
That is such a cozy looking quilt. Enjoy your finishing up :)
Love the wonky randomness of the blocks around the outside... so "liberated"!!
Enjoy your relaxing binding today!
LOVE your scrappy quilt!!!
What a great use of those extra strings and crumbs. It looks rather vintage.
What a great quilt. I like the mix of strings and wonky blocks, and really love the little tan/brown accents.
Very fun quilt. Enjoy your slow stitching today.
This is a lovely quilt. No waste either.
How you've made the scraps shine! A real beauty here!
This quilt looks great. I think the blue binding will look great. Enjoy your stitching.
Sounds like a perfect Sunday afternoon. Enjoy.
I love string quilts, and it looks great the way you make this one, great layout. Hugs
I love string quilts, too, and this one looks terrific! Enjoy your binding, which is always a nice peaceful process.
You have been so busy lately, I am sure that a little quiet time feels like a vacation!!
Your "left overs" string quilt is wonderful. A friend gave me a dozen of her husbands shirts to make a remembrance quilt. Lots of plaid shirts, perhaps I'll make a string quilt like yours.
Quilts from leftovers are so much fun! I made 7 shirt quilts from my FIL's shirts for family memebers after he died. They are full of memories.
