    Christmas String Quilt

    This will be for my daughter and her family. I need to wash it, but other than that, it's done. (Finally--this one seemed to take forever. I love Christmas fabric, but even I am a bit tired of it at this point!)

    I'm very impressed with how you handled both the scrappy part, using SO MANY fabrics, as well as the ORDERLY Arrangement, where there is a controlled beauty that shows how well you planned your Layout. I appreciate seeing your Close-Up photos, to see how the parts were sewn together. Thanks for sharing. I might try this.
    My fabric talks to me.

    Thanks, everyone. I pieced it on paper triangles.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    There's a lot of love and work in that quilt! It's sure to be well loved. Good for you to stick with it and get it finished!
