    String Quilt Started

    Here is a string quilt I started last night, it's 9 1/2" blocks and so far it's 6 blocks across by 3 down. Just doing scrappy 30's.

    Amazing beginning. This is going to be an awesome quilt. Thanks for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    That purple repeat is going to be a great eye catcher in your quilt. Kudos!

    Love the way the navy blue strip unifies the blocks. This will be a great quilt.
