Spiderweb and Stars

Hi all,  I'm so glad that Brenda invited me to join you.  Your string quilts are very inspiring!!  String quilts are my absolute favorites, especially the older ones.

Here are two that I'm making based on old beauties in Gwen's Liberated String Quilts book.


This is a combination of "strings" (aka scraps) and strips of yardage.    A work in progress, about half on the wall so far.

I used Gwen's template and measurements in the book for this one.
