spring strings

It finally feels like we have spring!  Blue sky and sunshine.  Today was probably the last day that I will hike up the mountain and slide down on a black garbage bag!  It was so fun and so fast.  What a great way to start the weekend.
I finished this last week.  It was my first string quilt.  Next time I will do the middle string the same color to add some definition.  This floral fabric just never ends and maybe multiplies in my stash. I am not sure how I got so much of it and WHY I just can't get rid of it.  How many quilts have to have it before I can just throw the rest or donate it and move on to something I really like?

Tonight I am going to do some hand quilting for embellishment on a wall hanging that has been sitting around just wanting to be finished.  Maybe I can show it tomorrow.

  1. I think I like this better than the ones that have the consistent fabric down the middle of each block.
    This is really lovely. I don't know what you mean..."this floral fabric" .......the borders or the prints IN the quilt. Whichever, it's a beautiful quilt.
