WIP Wednesday: Another Sunday Morning Quilt

It's WIP Wednesday again and work on the Sunday Morning Strings quilt has continued.

This quilt is based on Amanda Jean's "Candy Coated" quilt from the book Sunday Morning Quilts. It was created in direct response to my overflowing string containers. This photo shows the situation post-quilt. The roasting pan on the bottom is still full but the "strings" jar on top is almost empty, there are just a few strings loosely shoved in there.

Gloriously organized scraps!
I really wanted to do a low volume quilt, like those that are all the rage lately. But, I just don't really have the stash for it, and as I was sorting the strings brighter ones kept calling out to me to be included! So instead this top has a mix of colors, mostly on the lighter, mellower side. I think I like it.

I evened out the strips of different lengths with my go-to white fabric. The top comes to 48"x62" and I'm not planning to add any borders, so this is it. Hopefully this weekend this one can get basted and quilting can begin. I'm planning to try out a new free motion design and I'm excited to get started.


  1. Very pretty! I borrowed that book from the library and didn't think much of it at first... but with each page through it has grown on me and now I want to make several quilts from it. I'm saving my waste triangles to make Up, Up and Away!

  2. I love this book, and just finished a quilt of this pattern! Mine is mostly limey greens, with white, pale blue, gray and a hint of orange. I love it.

  3. Visiting from WIP wednesday. I love the string quilt. It is very low volume, which is all the rage. I have been meaning to do one like that for ages. Well done
