For the past couple of weeks I have been working on a string scrap quilt using Film in the Fridge's Converging Corners tutorial. What started out as a messy pile of string has become a finished, kid-size quilt.

I kept the fabrics boy-friendly. This quilt is joining the Purple Kool-Aid quilt in my Emergency Baby Quilts pile. I am trying to have a boy quilt and a girl quilt ready to go at all times and the last two have already been given away.
|Some more sock monkey fabric. I bought a 1/4 yd of that for my very first quilt and I am STILL using up the scraps.|
|LOVE that rocket fabric!|
I opted for a quick all over stipple for the quilting. I always quilt string quilts densely because I worry about seams fraying. Not to mention, the dense quilting gives texture to die for.
I pieced a scrappy binding from the bits of binding left from other projects.
The quilt finished at 36"x48", perfect for a baby or a kid.

Ending with some parting shots. Can't believe the sun came out for pictures this morning after how dark and damp it was yesterday.
