Who said String Quilts were ugly?

You have to admit even if you don’t like string quilts that this one is kind of cute. I finished quilting this HeartStrings quilt (with more swirls!) – trimmed it and then put together the photographer’s stand I bought to take quilt photos. I didn’t get this hanging perfectly straight but it will do for now.

I love the colors in this quilt. I thought I’d back it with purple and use purple thread to quilt it but after pulling out a bunch of purple fabric I realized it was calling for blue. Luckily I had two blues that look great with it in my stash.

This quilt meets Judy’s Use the Stash Challenge for July. The border and the two backing fabrics have been in my stash for quite a while.

  1. I love string quilts. I’ve made two in my quilting journey and keep telling myself to make more. Someday, soon, I’ll have to post a picture of both on my blog.
