    String quilt for Family Reunion

    My family reunion is this Sunday August 12 and i wanted to make a quilt for the raffle. after seeing the string quilts on this board, I really wanted to make one. Here is my result. i had a great time putting the blocks together and reliving each string-this was so and so's baby quilt, this was my DD's dress' DS's boxers, etc. the quilting didn't come out quite as nice as i would've liked(it always looks better in my mind), but all in all i am very happy with it. i posted it on FB and got lots of positive feedback to stroke my ego. ha ha
    it is lap sized and did not even make a dent in my string stash! this quilt was virtually cost free-the backing fabrics came from Salvation Army store, strings from my scraps. i did buy the black Kona because I wanted the centers the same. the batting was from my stash of batting. now i need to make about 50 more to use up my stash! LOL

    It looks great! Your quilting really looks good too. I love string quilts, I want to make one with Christmas fabrics, but it's not gonna happen this year.

    You did an awesome job!
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    Very nice. I also like the black and how you used it. I am looking forward to going a string quilt as soon as I finish my 2 WIPs.

    I like the addition of the black in it, too... it really sets it off. Great job! Have fun at your reunion!
