Strings, Strip and Tumbler quilts

I love my strings and it gives me such pleasure to finish a String quilt. I am so pleased at how pretty this String quilt washed and crinkled up. I have a bin with leftover batting pieces and use that in my String quilts.
I like to show a few tops I quilted. This is Pat's beautiful blue and yellow String quilt.
Pieced backing
This Strip pattern is very popular. This is also Pat's quilt.
Pieced border from leftover batik strips.
Sally's batik Strip quilt.
A bird quilt from a different Sally. She made excellent use of a bird panel.
Sally's second bird quilt.
Sally's cheerful Boho quilt.
Carolyn's blue and white quilt. She used her husband's old plaid and striped shirts in the quilt.
I finished the piecing on one of my old Rail Fence UFO's.
I hate sewing borders, but I got this one done.
I worked on another UFO.
This was a kit and I knew I will never get to it.I took my Go Cutter Tumbler die and made a Tumbler quilt. The sewing went fast and I am done with the quilting.
Busy sewing on the binding from the leftover backing fabric.
I am working on a giveaway and the clue is....Go Cutter die. More details coming soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Smiles,
Millie

Always love to see your quilts, Millie, and your string ones are the prettiest ever! Do you use a fabric foundation to piece those on, or paper? Just curious.
