Strings!!

 I finished all the blocks for my limey green string quilt!  So fun, and so fast...if you have never tried string quilts, this might be your new favorite thing, ever!

Here is how is goes together.  A comment about that very dark green strip, that almost looks black.  That little piece is one of the last pieces of an Easter dress that my momma made me, as a child.  It had a satin pinafore, and a velvet skirt...dark green velvet.  I felt like a princess on Easter, when the ladies all dressed up and wore their over-the-top Easter bonnets, way back in the day.  So...that is why it is included in this quilt...so tactile and soft.  I love it!!
 And here is all the strings that are left!!  I used almost every one, and will use these all up in the border.
Here is another row on this rainbow quilt...love this!!!!  ON we go!!

I am linking to Lori, at Humble quilts...just go and see all those lovely string quilts going on!!

I will freely admit I am not a lover of string quilts. Particularly the making them part. But seeing this and how you sashed it has me wondering I'd maybe I should change my mind...its beautiful and wonderful and I love it!

I just went to a theater performance of the Wizard of Oz last night and I still say that quilt would be right at home in the Emerald City! It is wonderful!
And your orange star blocks are so very happy looking. :)

Green is not usually one of my favorite colors, but your green string quilt has turned out fantastic! How special it is that it has a strip from one of your favorite childhood dresses!
What a wonderful memory to include in your quilt! ---"Love"
