    Possibly the wildest string quilt ever!

    Well, I finally finished it. My wild string quilt, made with all my stray flannel scraps from comforters large and small over the years. I used the waxed paper method, think I will try the muslin method next, just to see which I prefer. As you can see I knotted it instead of quilting. Wild but will keep someone warm.

    Love your wild quilt. It looks warm and inviting, just perfect to wrap around yourself on a cold evening.
    Thank you for sharing.

    It's wonderfully scrappy! It's the kind of quilt you want to snuggle in on a cold, rainy night with a book and mug of hot chocolate. Thanks for sharing.

    I believe it is the same as using freezer paper or another lightweight paper to help stabilize the fabric while piecing. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct this!

    I guess i wasn't so clear, but the wax paper method is using waxed paper for a foundation. Other members have posted tutorials, and steered me to a great website and blog-quiltville.com by Bonnie Hunter. She gives great pictures and very easy directions.
