A few months ago Sharon was listing off all of the possible places for patterns to use for the Let's Book It and she mentioned the internet, light bulb moment, I have a few (many) quilts bookmarked so that's what I used this month. Here's a link to the pattern
All I saw when I looked at that was what a great string quilt.
I didn't follow the directions, just cut the strings the same width they had in the pattern, 1 1/4".
My strings are completely out of control, somehow they've expanded from their usual home to 4 reusable shopping bags, I guess I had a plan at some point because they are sorted by color values.
This quilt made a small dent in the "brights" bag, was easy to do and I love the way it turned out.
I'm declaring war on my strings so you'll be seeing a lot more string quilts, hopefully I can have my shopping bags back by the end of the year.
Think about joining in, I love the "Let's Book It" linky party.
