Quilts of September #1

It's a finish!
#1 for September.

Crossed
57  x 76


I started making these Crossed blocks (tutorial at The Long Thread) back in 2011. Can you believe at that time I only had enough strings for just 10 blocks?? 


And now this month I finally have gotten around to quilting it. I just quilted it on my DSM with horizontal and vertical lines.

The binding is also scrappy - made from old quilt backing trimmings. 

I think I am going to make another one because I definitely have a LOT of strings now.  Instead of white I will probably use some other solid color...maybe red. 

Ho, ho, ho! It is finally finished! And it really has character(s)...Snoopy, Spiderman, Santa.

The back is pieced with some yardage and two strips (one pink, one white) left over from other quilt backs. 

Ready for giving or gifting!
And on to the next!

One down! So your roll out of completed quilts begins. Love this quilt, I can see why you’re intending to make another.

Love, love, LOVE that quilt! Maybe it’s time to change up my string game to that pattern!

A fun, new way to use strings. I have some of your background fabric in my stash. Always a treat to see matches in other quilters’ works.
