Strings, strings, strings



Finally got it binded. I quilted it in the summer but it was too heavy to bind and label then. It is nice and heavy and now that there is a slight chill in the air, it helps keep my feet warm while I watch TV. I hate wearing socks.
I wanted to display it in the guest room but hubby feels that because it is very heavy compared to my regular quilts, I will benefit from it on the cold winter nights we get here in this part of Florida.
A final thanks to Jean for the excellent tutorial.

VERY nice...I have some blocks made for a totally scrappy one and will try to work more on it this winter.

I love your string quilt and of course it would be heavy with all those seams, I just hadn't thought about it before.

Wonderful quilt; you got to love a quilt that uses even the narrowest of scraps! I can imagine it was too warm to bind in the summer with all those layers of seam allowances and maybe foundations.

love that quilt. Must try one.
Quilts round the legs on cold nights are just too cosy.
