The string blocks measure 6" finished. Making this many blocks nearly, but not quite, wiped out my blue and brown strings. Adding solid borders brought the top to 60"x84".
I love scrappy quilts like this because of all the bits you can use up. Very traditional fabrics mixed with childish and modern ones. Flannels, quilting cottons, and corduroy, everything goes!
This little bit of Tasmanian Devil flannel came from some fabric my mother made me pajamas from when I was a child. Long before I started sewing, and yet here it is in one of my quilts.
The body of the quilt is stippled while the borders got a curly wave design. The binding, of course, is scrappy. For the backing I found a brown and blue flannel. The quilt is awfully heavy, but wonderfully snuggly. Perfect for cool winter nights.
Wilson was as helpful as every during my photo shoot. The fall days are just wonderful, I wish it could last forever!
