    inspired to make scrappy quilt

    I have seen so many scrappy quilts shown here on the forum that I finally had to sit down and do it!

    This is going to be a generous lap size quilt. I am foundation piecing it on muslin and batting and backing it with whatever I find in my stash. My question is how have others of you quilted your string quilts? I do plan to do it on my DM and am just curious as to how to quilt this particular piece. Thanks for any help.

    I have one right now that SHOULD be finished because i need it for Sunday the 12th. I am just using a loopy all over design because of all the straight lines. I haven't finished it because i wanted to use a bright verigated thread, but it's size 20, which is very thick and i can't get the tension right using it in the bobbin too. I am at the lake house so do not have my thread stash here. Going home today though, so when it is finished I will post a picture. It looks very similar to yours.

    I am real eager to see your quilt when you are finished! I know what you mean by getting the tension right. My machines really like poly thread and when I want to use varigated thread I have to play awhile to get it right.

    I am sorry for not saying so before, this is in response to Sewmom, thanks

    I made a rag quilt . . . . . . once. That was enough for me. I found the cutting afterwards a bit tedious. Yet, I love tedious in other projects! So, hats off to you for loving rag quilts!

    I can't believe it, my scrap strips are multiplying instead of diminishing! (It might be because I keep cutting more strips!) I love making these blocks. My DGD is here for a summer visit and she loves all things of China. I have some Oriental fabrics that I am thinking of stripping and putting together for her. Ya'all might have helped create a monster . . . .at least here on my sewing room floor!

    That is one of the perks that make scrap quilts so appealing!

    I just got back from taking 4 items to enter in the fair. My DGD took her first entry, too!

    I made this one a couple of years back. I free motion quilted leaves, maybe you can make them out. I love how yours is coming along. You're so right, these blocks are addictive!

    I love your quilt! I can't see the leaves quilted in but, I love the leaf borders! I considered putting a black frame around each square of 4 but I like the secondary pattern, too!

    That is very pretty. I love how the scrapy quilts look in the strips. Makes them beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
