I felt fantastic when I finished this quilt, so I’m calling it “Stringtastic!” Not only was I relieved to get it done, but also satisfied with how it turned out.
I went a little out of my comfort zone with the orange and aqua palette. I tried sneaking in a bit of pink – y’all know I love my pink! – but it just didn’t fit so I left it out. Even with the bright orange fabrics, to me there is something serene about this quilt. I think adding the grey helps to calm the orange down.
Here’s a look at the back. I added a some flying geese just because I have a soft spot for flying geese!
From the back, you can get a better view of the quilting.
At 48″ by 64″ this quilt is a great size for sitting on the couch and watching TV. But it will be a while before I get to use this quilt for TV watching. Right now, it sits in Thimble Pleasures where it will be a sample for the string class I’m teaching in January.
If you are in the Chapel Hill, NC area and have always wanted to learn how to make a string quilt, be on the look out for the class. A little bird over at Thimble Pleasures told me the class schedule will be up in early December.
Now, that this quilt is done, I’m re-grouping to figure out what’s next. As usual, there’s so much fabric and so little time!
Wishing you a great weekend!
