It started with 12 orphan blocks - those Whirlagigs (or St. Bridget's Crosses) that were leftover from a quilt finished in 2010. They were originally swapped blocks made in batiks on black backgrounds.
I added some strings, some HSTs from the Parts Department. I blogged about the whole process back in September 2019 when I made the top. I even added a simple border which is a rarity here.
I quilted it with unmarked and unevenly spaced vertical lines. I used gray thread on top.
I just quilted lines until I ran out of bobbin threads. Then I decided that was enough quilting.

Well, I did make the top in a hurry like planned and I did enjoy the process and I do like the finished top. And I did use a lot, but not all, of the quilt back trimmings. Some of those remaining trimmings I'll cut into squares, scrappy binding or strips or skinnier strings for the skinny string box which is a separate box from the quilt backing trimmings box.
