Scrappy String Quilt

Often, I have "top-secret" quilting to do and can't show any in-progress pics because the quilt will be in a magazine or on a video somewhere.  Sadly, when the quilts are eventually returned to me, I often forget to show them to you!

This is one of those quilts.  It is a super-simple quilt that I absolutely adore:


This is a big throw size and it has covered a few of my hotel room beds.  I love sleeping under this quilt!

I dove into my string collection and pieced up some simple blocks like Bonnie Hunter taught me.  Then I set the blocks with narrow black sashing and a lot of black background, knowing that I was going to quilt the background with a contrasting color.

I used Midas Touch FabuLux thread for the decorative quilting and it just shines on this quilt.

I'm very proud of my Craftsy machine quilting classes.  This pattern is one of my favorites in my latest class, Stunning Free-Motion Quilting Using Simple Shapes.  This LINK will give you $20 off the regular price of the class (no need to wait for a sale!).
