Design wall 9/19/17 next string quilt

I can’t believe I have neglected my blog for so long. The last post was about the killdeer eggs back in July! I can happily say that the day we left for our vacation, I got to see 2 little bitty killdeer running across the driveway as we drove down it. I’ve decided that there were more eggs around because I now see 12 -15 killdeer when I drive up the driveway and prior to the eggs hatching I’d see 2 or 3 of them.

Anyway, back to quilts, I finally have something back on my design wall to show. I spent a couple evenings sewing the strings together and today I cut a few up just so I could see how they’re going to look.

Different, but I’m liking them! Hopefully I can find time this week to get the blocks sewn together.

Design wall 6/20/17 string star quilts

My design wall is bare today, I hope to fix that soon, as I am working on my next string quilt. 

Last time I posted, my design wall had the beginning of the string stars quilt on it. It is now finished. 

After finding an old string quilt top in an antique store I decided that it would be fun to make the same pattern with today’s fabrics. The old top (right) is dated back to around the late 1800’s judging by the fabrics used in it. (I’ve been told)  Mine (left) was made from scraps from my stash over 100 years later.  Anyway,  here they are side by side. 

This quilt was a challenge to get made, but it’s done and now I’m going back to making squares for my string blocks! LOL!!

That’s for now. Have a good week!

Design wall 5/22/17 string blocks

Just a quick check in here for design wall Monday. I’m making another string quilt with the shadow look. I decided this time to make the strings rectangles instead of squares. 

I hope I can get this sewn together this week, so I can start the next string quilt I have planned. I’m addicted to these crazy strings!!
