Strings, Strings, Strings


Thanks to Jeans awesome tutorial , I am so hooked on these and I have tons of ideas of things I want to make.
She actually did me a big favor because I have to make a graduation quilt for my daughters best friend and this will be technique I use. He only likes reds so it will be a red quilt with some gray and black and I think this technique will showcase it well.
Thanks again Ms. Jean.

I do love string quilts. The red, black, and grey one will be very handsome.

Beautiful start Betsy. Don't you find string quilting relaxing? I love it, especially the nights I just want to sew without too much thinking involved.
