Strung Out

I finally finished my string quilt. Yay!

I started this quilt forever ago! I think over two years. As you may remember I finished the top this spring. But I was waiting for my new Machine to quilt it. Although I got my machine in June it has taken me till now to get it finished. You know life and such happens. Plus quilting is intimidating to me because I know it is a big time commitment, which is a bit tough around these parts.

I did a simple straight line zigzag quilt from top to bottom approximately 2″ apart with a few smaller ones thrown in for randomness. The back is a simple yellow and orange vintage floral sheet. I used only scraps for this project, and wow it’s like I didn’t even use any scraps. Oh well, that just means I need to make another right? :)

Have you ever made a string or scrap quilt? I would love to see it.

Gift Quilt

I made this quilt for my Husbands Sister and her Family this Christmas.

A big zigzag quilt. I saw the big zigzags somewhere in the fall and wanted to make one so bad. Each square is roughly 8″ wide. The quilt itself measures 80″w x 96″t.

This was such a quick quilt to make. I followed the method I learned in the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along on Flicker. The zigzag quilt along was round 2.

I did simple quilting, sewing along the outer edges of the patterned zigzags resulting in simple yet striking quilting.

I found most of the fabrics at Joanns, with the exception of  two which where in my stash. I used two sheets for the back and the binding. And my usual white fabric, Kona: Snow.

It’s another one that was tough to giveaway because I love it so much. But it’s not really tough because I get so much joy out of people using my quilts and the things I make. :)

Stop back in in the next couple days to see the two quilts I gave away on From:Me To:You in October for it’s 2 year anniversary. They are finally finished, and 1 was delivered in person, while the other is on its way. :)
