I finished my string quilt this past weekend. It was a quick and easy finish! It measures 92" X 92". It's a really great size and used up some of my fabric stash.
Here's the back. I think you can see the quilting better on this side. I used ribbon candy in the diagonal strip of each block and also outlined that strip with a ruler. The blocks were just stippled. Stippling was really the best decision since it was difficult to see what I was doing. I used an Aurifil gray thread that blended a little too well! The back is nice and flat. I love that texture! I just stitch the seams on the piano border.
I paper pieced a few hearts in honor of Valentine' Day! I think I might make a mug rug. I haven't decided for sure! Valentine's Day is also my son's birthday so it's doubly special!
What a nice birth date;))) your string quilt turned out beautifully with your gorgeous quilting...the little hearts are so cute...Hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you, Julierose! I always look forward to small projects after working on large quilts.Delete
What a precious Valentine's Day gift you received when your son was born. The quilting you did on the strings quilt is very nice. Those cute little hearts will make a nice mug rug.ReplyDelete
He's always been my best Valentine's gift ever! Thank you, Jeanna. I'm not sure what to do with those hearts. I might make a few more and see!Delete
