More progress on the String Quilt.......

I must say I would prefer to call it a Scrap Quilt, as its made with scraps of material, string quilt sounds strange to me???

Anyhow I set aside four hours this afternoon to quilt and I made another 28 blocks for a total of 36 so far. I am thinking I may need 80 blocks total for a full size quilt? A lot will depend on how far I can make my scraps stretch!!!




There probably won't be a lot of progress on it, until next week as I have a lot of other things to do the rest of the week, but I am liking what I have done so far, which is good.

Gill, it's very pretty. How effective your 'scraps' are!! It looks like 3D and very pleasing effect to the eye!!
You are doing a real nice job!

As it is it would make a lovely wall-hanging.

I've confessed I'm not a crafty person before Gill, but i do like the colour combinations in your quilt.
