    here is a little string quilt i just finished. i got the idea from an old book i checked out of the library. i love the traditional look of a scrappy quilt.
    it is 40 x 40 inches. it is a baby quilt for the great grand baby of a friend.

    Very nice nanobirdmo...I like how you have left the strips 'squiffy' and weren't tempted to straighten them all off :D

    thanks izy, i love your word, "squiffy". that's one of the things i love about string quilts. i use every string of every size, and crooked is good.
    i also don't separate my scraps into colors or values or genre. i just reach into the scrap box and pull something out. it is very freeing.
