    Okay, I decided to go ahead and post pictures even though I am not finished. I THOUGHT I was finished untill I put it on the bed. You can't tell from the pictures, but it is short on the sides. I need to make 16 more blocks!!!AAARRRGGG!! I am glad I took the two rows apart and redid then. You can see how pretty the back looks!
    By the time I am through, it will only need a very small border to frame the edge blocks....
    My DH LOVES the quilt and is in AWE of my work! That is a reward in itself! :-D
    Okay, tell me what you think!

    I think I am inspired to work on my string quilt again. LOVE how you put it together with the small sashing strips.

    Good Job. I did one simular and love it. I like that fact that when you are done you don't have to quilt it!!

    It's sure is pretty! :thumbup: I can see why your hubby likes it and is impressed with your work! Isn't it great when they appreciate what we've done? I'll have to add this style of quilt to my "to do" list. Thank you for the inspiration! :thumbup:

    I grew up helping my mom make string quilts with newspaper squares to piece them too. It was always my job to tear the newspaper off when she got a square made. Did you make this by Betty Cottons quilt as you go or another method? I love your quilt. It brings back memories.
