    The more I see the string quilts, the more I like them! I am planning on making one for our bed and was thinking about tying it but wasn't sure how it would look... thanks for the visual!

    Neat set up, too! Do you put anything underneath it so you don't tie it to the bed, or is that just something I would do?? ;) ha ha!

    Very pretty. My grandma used to make string quilts, but she called them memory quilts because they were made from the family's recycled clothes and the kids would find their favorite clothes pieces and remember different things about wearing them or where they came from. Thanks for sharing.

I also use my bed for my cutting board my Dh got me a big piece of plywood panel and he cut it in half for me and it works great I can even put both pieces of the plywood together on the bed to do my tyeing with, are else I get out my
    two big hard Plastic sew horses and put my big whole plywood
    panel on them and do the pinning are tyeing in my dinning room.Makes it so easy, no bending over.. :-D :thumbup:

    Love your quilt, and great idea with the boards to keep it even, I remember seeing this a long time ago and had forgotten how it was done. Thanks for sharing.
