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,
