Default String Quilt

This has turned out to be one of my favorite quilts. Maybe it has something to do with the current state of the world but it makes me happy whenever I look at it. The quilt is made entirely from scraps, including batting, backing and binding. I can see scraps from so many of the quilts I’ve made. Sweet memories.

I have come to love string quilts too. I have a quilt on my bed that was so simple to make and made from all string blocks. Congratulations on this beautiful quilt that you made. I for one am in love with it.
