String Star


This quilt was stitched a while back, but I had it quilted this week. I am so pleased with it!

The colours look very tropical seas. I always really enjoy working with that aqua marine palette.

Especially today when it is cold and grey!

    That is really pretty. Were the string diamonds that make up the points of the star made in the same way as the string blocks we made with you in November?. Coincidentally I have just been sorting through my huge box of strips and strings – can feel another thrifty quilt coming on.

    It looks great – like the one further down in your blog.
    How big are the star blocks? I'm thinking of making something like this out of old clothes from my grandad who died in January… Makes me think I could do with a refresher in string quilts! 🙂
    Will also try and email you a picture soon of the beginnings of my hexagon quilt – english paper piecing is quite addictive!
