String Quilt Top Finished
I finished this top about an hour ago. It is the first one in the Use It Up that I started and the 4th top I have made. I wanted to run the blocks in columns but I was a little concerned with sewing them that way. It may have been nice with the sashing but was easier to add a piece of sashing onto the side of each block and then sew them together and into rows. Let me tell you that thing is heavy. I did the blocks on muslin and this will be one warm quilt. I only put a 2 inch border on it because it is plenty big enough and didn't want to fool with more borders. I didn't measure the quilt but it is about the size of the last one I just finished and will go nicely on a twin size bed.
I will finish Mom's up after I go to the quilt shop for some border fabric for it. They are having a big sale this weekend and I don't want to miss it. Any Super Bowl sales in your local quilt shops?
