Another String Quilt Finish

String Quilt
60 x 80

It's a finish!

This is almost a twin to the one I blogged about the other day except that this top was finished earlier this year and that top was finished in 2023. 

This one has black center strings with colorful text and stars. 

I quilted it on my DSM (Brother PQ1500SL) with swirls in lime green thread. 

The binding is a black fabric with swirls.

The backing.

I'm trying to get all the tops with strings quilted this month.

And sew on...

CELEBRATE! (my word of the year)

July 8 - Finished a book - All The Glimmering Stars by Mark T. Sullivan. It is historical fiction inspired by the true story of Anthony Opoka and Florence Okori, teenagers (and good humans) in Uganda in the 1990s who were kidnapped along with thousands of other children to serve in the Lord's Resistance Army of warlord Joseph Kony.  It's a sickening and very sad story about child soldiering and slavery.  It is also a story of bravery, survival, dreams, and love.

July 9 - A visit from a Question Mark Butterfly.
