    DWR String quilt

    This is one of those quilts that is wasn't meant to be. I started out with a plan for a totally different quilt. My planned failed. My string blocks were already pieced so I had to come up with a new plan. The new planned worked! I still need to machine stitch the all the applique,which is the entire quilt.

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

    Great quilt. The best laid plans can go awry but then something better happened.

    That is so very cute. Wonder if you could sandwich and then machine quilt the appliqué. That would quilt it, too. Two birds.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    This is one of those beautiful times when throwing everything into the pot and giving it a good stir, has ended up with something that is more than its parts. WOW!

    How cute!! You did a great job. I've never seen a DWR quite like it before!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!
