Baby Strings

In May I worked on a string quilt while at a retreat.  The leftovers have now been put to good use.  Originally, this was the layout:

I decided, however, to change the layout and I like this much better.

The string sections are quilted with a loop pattern and the white sections are done with straight lines.

Another finish feels really good, but I don’t want to just add it to my pile of finished quilts. It’s too small for a Hospice quilt, so I will be donating it to my guild because they  give quilts to the hospital. I’d love this to go home with new parents and their precious little one, or a baby in need of extra TLC.

And here’s my September wrap-up.  Much of my time has been spent sorting through stuff some reorganization.  Sewing has definitely taken a back seat. I enjoy sewing more when all is in order!

  1. Joyce, you are amazing! What a wonderful quilt!!! I need to hit the sewing machine when we get back from Baltimore.

    I’m going to check with Brian Allen to schedule a date for the Hospice quilt dedication — probably mid-November. I’ll let you know…
