    #6 of 2013 Mission to use scraps - Finally

    Here is the latest, it took quite a bit longer than the others. It is 80" x 97". Had to hang it sideways to take the pic. No pattern used, just my interpretation of a quilt I saw in a photo and loved. Used string blocks and a bunch of my 1 1/2 in. strips. It will go into the to-be-quilted pile as the machine I use on my frame is very sick (sobbing) and I fear will need major surgery. Going to use the x-block ruler on my next one. Happy Quilting to All!!!

    So pretty and so much visual interest. I love how it looks three dimensional - the back ground with a lattice in front. Really neat quilt.

    I love your quilt, I can't believe you didn't have a pattern. Looks complicated, until you really study it.

    Way to use scraps. Great color, 3D affect, pieced sashing & binding. A keeper!

    You did an awesome job on that one. The sashing and border add a lot of interest to it.

    Very pretty quilt. It looks like your strings are behind the lattice work.

    Yes! Those are 1-1/2 inch pieces? What a lot of work. And I see you have been making lots of quilts to have this many scraps...
