Making quilts implies that there will be leftover fabrics. Colorful strings make interesting new scrappy masterpieces.
For this quilt I dug into my bins for novelty prints and bright fabrics. Each string block was 6.5" unfinished.
I added a grey border around the blocks, assembled some frankenbatting and pieced a backing from duvet covers.
I decided it was time for some FMQ practice, this time swirls in silver colored thread. To finish it off I pieced together leftover binding pieces from other projects. Finished size for this baby quilt is 40" squared.
The backing consists of a flannel duvet cover I have used on several projects, plus an added strip to make it big enough. This is a cozy and warm backing.
This is my tenth charity quilt for the year 2022, and
number 89 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.
Keep on quilting!
