    Stringy Lanes

    First finish of 2019

    I replaced four-patches with string blocks in the traditional Sunny Lanes pattern. I'm not thrilled with the 'lanes" at the edges of the quilt--next time, I'll spend a bit more time planning a symmetrical pattern. I do, however, love the colors and the fun fabrics. 74" x 94"

    I really like it! I love all the color. That's such a good idea. I'm on a string quilt/use up some of my stash binge lately. I'm going to have to add this one to the list.

    ​Great quilt! I love looking at scrap quilts and finding fabrics I have in my stash or have used. I loved that blue flower with paisleys so much I had it in purple and green.

    That is a great scrap buster. And you have a reason to make that pattern again LOL

    I really like it - a great way to use scraps.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Wow! I really like this alot! Given enough time and 'leftover' fabrics this should be easy and even fun to accomplish!

    Oh no, now I have a real dilemma... where am I going to store all of those little scraps that I typically don't save

    I could have written this response. Ditto from me. Working on a string quilt with a pattern that makes hearts. Trying to use up all the scraps I'm drowning in! My son accused me of becoming a hoarder! Oh No! but the string quilt doesn't even seem to make a dent in the scraps!!!!

    Love all the color and the layout of color versus white and blue.
