More Strings

 I just finished the binding on my 30's String Quilt. This is definitely going to be one of my favorite quilts. It went through the washer and dryer one time and crinkled up so nicely.
 I used most of the leftover strings from my 30's Disappearing Four patch quilt in this String quilt.
 I love gardening and therefore could not resist using this rose fabric on the back of the string quilt.
 The red binding just pops. I love it.
 While I was watering my potplants, a beautiful blue butterfly came to say "hi". He is on the leftside of the top flower pot.

Isn't it a beautiful butterfly? I don't think it's a coincidence that it came the day before my birthday. :)
 What makes this butterfly moment even more magical is that I started this Butterfly String quilt and began with the machine quilting an hour before I took the pictures.  I found this cute Butterfly tutorial over at Freshlemonsquilts over here. This is the fastest String quilt I have made so far.
 I always have more than one project going on at the same time. I started a Bow Tie quilt in red, pink, green and yellow.
Wishing you all a happy and magical summer,
