***THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICPATED***
I have a large tub (probably will fit in a size Large Priority Mail Box) of strings. Most are between 1″ and 2″ wide.
Would you like them? I’ll box them up and send them your way. US Postage included.
I have made a number of string quilts and really enjoy them. But, I have more than enough and would like to share.
The giveaway runs through Thursday, October 7. Winner notified and announced here on Friday, October 8.
Sparkle Jane (Daughter) wanted to try out a new technique–foundation string piecing.
She using the tan as a constant diagonal line in the blocks, adding random strips of controlled scrappy colors as she went along.
Narrow sashing between the blocks finished it off.
She enjoyed the technique, but didn’t love the colors. But, it was worth finishing, and it is finished, and that (as we all know) is good.
The last time I have a record of working on this quilt was August 2013. I know it set around for quite a while. (The nice thing about re-reading that post is that all three projects are now complete!) Obviously, I worked on it again later because it started this year as a finished top.
Now it is a finished quilt.
I quilted it myself on my faithful Pfaff 130. You can’t really see it in these pictures, but I just did a giant spiral starting at the point of the square and then working out around and around. There are some rough points where I forgot to make sure the needle was down before repositioning the quilt. Oh well, I was trying for done not perfect.
This is not counted as one of the 52 (see above). It is a nice throw size (45″ x 54″) and will join another quilt and an afghan in my classroom. Students sometimes get cold, or don’t feel well, or just want to be wrapped in a hug. Quilts add to the atmosphere of being welcome to learn, at least I think so.
