    String Quilt Revival in blue

    Went and bought the book after Charisma posted a picture of one of the quilts she had quilted for someone, so had to try it. Got into all of my scraps and had mostly blues. I will make another one, enjoyed the process and it was relaxing to be free form. Do know for the next one I will do more contrast between the starpoints and the strips. Only had enough scraps for 9 blocks, so now it mesasures 36 x 36. Will add borders and have a pretty cool baby quilt. Enjoy......and try it!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    That's how I started quilting. Many a baby has one of my string quilts. I love yours.
