    1930's Scrappy String Star Quilt

    My mom was born in 1930 and she wants a new quilt to put over her bed. The amish quilt that I bought her she says is too dark and she wants something lighter. So this is what she is getting for Christmas. Finished it up during a boring Denver Bronco game.

    Beautiful quilt. Maybe I will use my 30s repro fabric like this. A great idea.

    I have a friend who was telling me about a strip quilt but really didn't get it til I saw your Mom's quilt. That is a beautiful quilt! I love all the 30's fabrics with the white background. Well done!
