My string braid quilt is done! I talked about this quilt and shared a tutorial for making the blocks back in this post. I have been working on string quilts ever since I sorted my strings back in November. This first finish was the brown and blue traditional quilt, and this is the second.
This quilt finished at 56"x70". I still have a stack of these spring colored 60 degree triangles left, so there will be another similar quilt to come. The satisfaction of reducing a pile of string scraps into useful quilts is right up there for my favorite part of quilting.
I quilted it with a stipple using a variety of thread colors that match the colors in the top. Not only did the quilt use up scraps, it used up several partial spools of thread, too!
For the backing I used a bright pink polka dot I've had for years.
The bright happy quilt is a perfect antidote for the weather we've been having. Don't let the bright sunshine fool you, it was below freezing when I took these pictures and the wind was literally whipping the quilt around. As you can see by our dwindling wood stack we've been making lots of fires to cope!
