Finished Strip Twist Quilt

My Strip Twist quilt is finally done. It is a little too busy for my taste, but I am sure this quilt will find a good home. One thing I am so proud of myself is that I made this quilt from my scraps and did not buy any new fabric.
 I used a lot of the leftover fabric from these three quilts in the Strip Twist.
More leftover fabric for a half block flowery String quilt.
 My goal this year is to make quilts from my scraps and strings. I do enjoy to make quilts from strings.
 And the last picture below is a Star and String quilt from batiks. I found this free tutorial on Mary's blog. If you enjoy doing power sewing like me, then you will love her free scrappy patterns.
Happy Quilting,
Millie
