String Stars - It's a Flimsy!


String Stars
86 x 98
A flimsy for now


I used my bright and long string scraps. 
Most were strings cut from quilt backings. 


From far away the fabrics kind of blend together. Up close you can see a variety of fun things - monster eyeballs, pirates, Santa and Rudolph, spiders...


...and Spider Man...and gingham. I love gingham. 
Ah, the memories of quilts past!

Usually scrap quilts do not attract me, but I must say, this one is really pretty. Maybe the bright colors do it for me, and I love that pattern too. ---"Love"

Wow! What an accomplishment, and so very gorgeous! Congratulations on getting it done. Curious to know, if you hadn't committed it to OMG, do you think it would be a finished flimsy? Have a wonderful day!

It's a fantastic scrappy quilt! You have such a great eye for putting things together that don't usually go together, and having it look amazing!

Congrats on this fantastic finish. I love how you regrouped some colours together to make all these different fabrics appealing to the eye. Great use of scraps too. Wonderful! Love it. ;^)
