A Quilting and Nursing blog!!
I'm surprised that you don't just come home and collapse..any more new + Covid's at your hosp?
It’s lovely! I like the big stitch quilting.
Beautiful quilt and quilting. I can't get big stitches, mine always end up smaller, but I do enjoy hand quilting, find it relaxing, but it does take a long time.Debbie
That is a very beautiful quilt! Your hand-stitching is so pretty and added a special effect. I love how you zig-zagged in the sashing. I always back my string quilts with muslin too; it controls the stretching of the various fabrics. Aren't color catchers wonderful? Glad they saved your quilt! (It's 9:45 PM here and I just now turned my machine off and unplugged the iron!) ---"Love"
Love the hand quilting on your newest finishes. That should be a perfect quilt for early spring, light, bright and definitely cheerful. Sonething we all need right now.
What a very happy quilt, Julie! It is so "you", with the strings and the fun colors. Your stitching is perfect.I can imagine that with all you face at work, you can use the soothing quilt therapy at the end of the day more than most of us!Cute little mug rug, too. :)
i don't think i've ever seen a string quilt i didn't love and yours is no exception....thanks for the inspiration...
Love the string quilt. I like the border with the HST.
I love that string quilt! Fantastic quilting!I hope you will link this post to the Slow Sunday Stitching link up so everyone can see your wonderful quilt!You are being very productive...great finish!
Such a lovely, cheerful quilt! I love seeing your stitches. They are beautiful. Hugs and prayers, Julie.
That is terrific! I know that flannel on the back will be great to snuggle with!! I hope you are doing okay.
Oh how great that one is!! I personally love that backing!!!
So enjoy the big quilting with perle cotton. May have to try it sometime. My snuggle quilt which was made 15 yrs ago had flannel backing and it's wonderful. Your quilt is lovely!
I have never finished a quilt with no batting but know it used to be a common practice on quilts like yours that have a base fabric for the strings.I hope you are getting rest as I know it is trying times for nurses and doctors, etc.
Beautiful work. Stay safe and good luck.
Lovely finish and great quilting...i can't wait to get back to my Courthouse Steps stringing;right now into mask making for family members...stay safe --"elbow waggling" ;))) Julierose
Lovely work, Julie, as always. I haven't tried big stitches quilting yet. Stay safe. ;^)
I too love all your hand quilting on this cheerful scrappy string quilt!
What a great project to have been working after being at the hospital during the day. I don't know how those color catches work, but so glad they do. Thank you for all that you've been doing for others.
What a great quilt and quilting! Stay safe and thank you for your service!
Thinking of you and all the other dedicated nursing staff who are on the front lines of this pandemic, so scary! Glad fabric, needle and thread help you make it through the night. Hugs!
I don't know when I missed this post but I did until today. I love the quilting on your string quilt. It made it really special. The quilts that I have used flannel for the backing are the ones my grandkids always grab when they come to watch a movie downstairs. Nice finish.
