Strings Progress...

In case you missed the post earlier this week, CiL is now affiliated with another charity who will help us with discounted shipping!  Check out the details here and never pay more than $15 to ship to us again!

String quilts 13-15 are ready for their debut! I have put together all of these and really enjoyed working with all the different color combinations and blocks.  I really like this yellow/brown/red color fade, even though I did sort of lose the plot on that upper right corner. 

Blue and brown, always a classic combination. These are from the Jan/Feb string block drive. To see a tutorial of how I put them together there's a post here

These pretty pink/yellow/green/blue blocks went together really well and I used some of my leftover pink and blue dyed binding to finish it.  

Lastly, this black and red quilt had a dye-bleeding catastrophe in the wash from some of the red backings. It was far more than a color catcher or three could handle. After soaking in Dawn, washing in Syntrapol, etc. I think I revived it. Fortunately since the squares are black and red neither one shows some pink too noticeably. 

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 800 so far! The September/October drive is running now, check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  3. You do such a great job in putting all those blocks together in a beautiful, cohesive way to make such great quilts. I love the black & red quilt & sorry that it gave you problems with the red fading but I think it turned out fantastic.

  4. Glad you were able to salvage the dye bleeding! So many wonderful scraps in these beauties :)
