A Finish!

"String Fling" is all finished.  I quilted it with a simple and quick meander.  The quilt is so busy, anything fancy would be lost.  The back is a Kaffe print I got on-line in a great sale.  I am a little disappointed since the print is paint, not weaved in, but it wasn't a problem to quilt (maybe that is why it was such a sale).  At any rate, it will do for a back.    I put a narrow binding of green---again a scrap!  Everything about this quilt was machine---including applying the it was FAST!

I have wondered at times why I continue to quilt----can you get enough quilts or better yet, too many? When I see a quilt though made entirely of scraps and to me at least, is beautiful in it's randomness, I decide that I "need" quilting!

***  you can see just a little of Coal.  When I put down a quilt, he absolutely MUST find a reason to walk across it.  In the picture below, you see my grandson's knee.  Why is it so hard to take a picture of JUST the quilt at times :)!

  1. I love scrappy quilts and I don't think you can have too many. If you ever get overrun then sell them online or put them in a boutique of home décor. I think if I were a faster quilter, I would make larger bed/snuggle quilts and they would be scrappy or hand appliqued ones.
