String Fever Challenge Quilt Finished

Finishing at 62″ square and using an awful lot of stings, here is my newest quilt.  The white kona cotton is the only new purchase for this quilt.  See Stitched in Color for information.  There are still nine days until the challenge closes.

    I love this! I hope to make one of these someday. Do you organize your scraps or just throw them in a drawer? So far, I’m just throwing them in one drawer, but I wonder if I should separate them by color!!

      One drawer ~~ well plus a basket, then overflow into other places. It’s just a big jumbled mess of scraps here! I do sort most all other fabrics by colors and/or type.

      • Lisabeth Says:

        Thanks! I’m trying to figure out how to sort it all!! Then there are the pieces left over that aren’t scraps but are still not as big as a fat eighth or quarter! It’s great to see the creativity in using this leftover fabric!

    It’s beautiful! I have always loved scrap quilts and especially log cabin or variation of it. Your quilting adds so much to this. Did you QAYG? Toni

      Having just finished a “low volume”, I know that I have a lot of colors, but not so many neutrals.

    Stunning! This is one that I’d love to see in person – it must be amazing. Great quilting too!

    Beautiful use of scraps! I like how the white makes the blocks look offset. I popped in from the string link party.

    I have never made a single log cabin and yet you have made so many! I admire your finish as well as the patient quilting.
