I finally have a big quilt (84 x 96, I think) pin basted and in the hoop.
I'm doing some big stitching with pink perle #8.
I'm just stitching and not marking.
This is a VERY SCRAPPY string star quilt. Most of the strings came from the trimming of quilt backs.
Some Most of the scrappy stars lack symmetry but I don't see that as a problem. My goal was to use strings and make some stars. I'm definitely seeing stars.
A lot of the quilt backs were sheets. So I call this quilt More Than Three Sheets to the Wind.
I'm also using a nice soft pink silky feeling sheet from the thrift store for the back of this one. You can't really see it here but the sheet is embossed with roses.
