Another String Quilt

I had sections of the pieced strings leftover after I finished String Flimsy. I don't want any of those strings laying around here for another 10 or more years so I decided it was time for a crib quilt.

Right now this flimsy measures 42" X 49", a nice sized quilt.
It was a windy day and rather challenging to get a good picture.

This yellow has never photographed right. It's a soft yellow color but it isn't as washed out as it always shows in the pictures. Maybe after it's quilted it will look a little darker.


I still had strings left so I sewed them into the backing.

Do you recognize this yellow? The yellow is left from my Nearly Insane quilt. I always buy plenty of fabric when I make a long term quilt. I didn't know how much I'd need so I bought way more than I needed.


Anyway, the strings all are gone, at least until I sew some more!

It looks great. Good ideal use them up so they don't hang around. It's always better to get too much than run out.

Great way to use scraps! Looks good, I like the setting! Frustrating when the camera doesn't pick up the correct colors!

Beautifully use of scraps! It's so hard photographing certain colors, but we keep trying! Kudos to you for not letting this one sit for years!

It's got to feel good to have those strings all used up and into something useful, and I bet you have more room now too!

Love how you added rows of squares to the top and bottom to make it the right size. The pieced back is perfect for it. Beautiful finish.
