More fun with strings


 More fun with strings...I finished the quilting on this string quilt. I enjoy looking at all the different strings from my previous projects.
 
This is truly a scrappy quilt, even the back is scrappy.
I am glad I used a plain simple muslin border to frame all the busy string blocks.
I have been working on my red, white and blue string top for a few months. A few weeks ago I added two solid blue borders and finally I finished the sewing on the last two borders.
 Now these blocks do make my eyes spin, but I hope with some simple quilting the quilt will not be too wild.
 
Hope you had fun with my strings. It is time to start something new, but I like to finish these two string quilts before they get "lost" in a box for another month or two.
Happy quilting,
Millie

Good thinking, Millie, and they are both so pretty. My string box overflows at the moment, but too much else in the works first.
