    Fun and wonky string quilt

    The September 2014 issue of AQS magazine had an article by Gwen Marson about contemporary string quilts. That was the inspiration for the design of this quilt that I did for my niece, who is about to have her second child. Also, I recently viewed one of Angela Walter's Craftsy classes, called "dot-to-dot" quilting; the designs she taught there were the basis of the quilting I did. This quilt was really fun, and I'm very happy with how it came out. The back is flannel. I quilted on my LA, and then used a decorative stitch on my DSM for the edges of the purple sashing.

    That is a beautiful quilt and your quilting is amazing. I have a LA but I hate ruler work. Maybe I just need more practice, because yours is just so great I want to learn to like it.

    I didn't think I was a jealous person, but when I see such beautiful quilting I do get a twinge. I love the quilt and your quilting compliments it beautifully.

    I don't normally gravitate toward string quilts, but yours has pulled me in!
    I love the colors, the design, the quilting, the everything!!
