Stringin Along on A Friday

Here are a couple of finished from the String Quilts class from the guild in WA last month,

This entire quilt finishes about 19"x21".
Someone had commented that EPP would be hard to do but she pieced it! She used the eye spy template to do the strings. Isn't that darling?

I really want to make one of these now!

Good job Laura.

Bobbi made this sweet wheelchair quilt. 

It has pockets too lined with flannel to keep your hands warm. 
That is really wonderful!
If anyone else wants to share projects they did in class I'd love to see them!

On March 28th I will be presenting, "Reruns, Quilts Inspired by the Past" to the North Idaho Quilters in Hayden, Idaho. The teaching String Quilts the following day. 
If anyone is close, please make arrangements to come! I'm really looking forward to it!

I received some awesome fabric! Many of you heard the story on my facebook group so I won't rehash it here. Other than to say Michelle Yeo has designed some beautiful fabric from the antique quilt collection of Bev Bannard and what I ordered arrived yesterday! I'm giving my blog readers and facebook group a special price, 

You can get a closer look at them on my Etsy store, but the special pricing is only here.
Check out the prints I have HERE.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love the use of the I Spy template too! Beautiful fabrics from Michelle Yeo. Would make beautiful doll quilts. 😊

  2. I'm so looking forward to meeting you at the NIQ meeting later this month. Am very excited about the string workshop as well ... really hoping that I don't have to serve on jury duty that day as I recently received jury summons for that week (wouldn't ya know). I so enjoy your blog and am so looking forward to saying HI in person. Hope you are able to carve out a little time to stretch your legs on an area trail, either up a hill or around the lake.

  3. Wonderful string quilts. I wish I loved making them as much as I love the look! :)
    Gorgeous fabric collection. Hmmm, a bundle sounds like a good idea.

  4. Love the string quilts from your students—I hope you’ll show more! Roxanne
