Here's a tale of two string quilts, this one above
and one you can win here.
Back in January, Karen over at the Selvage Blog asked her readers
to sew together seven 1.25 inch strips to a final size of 6 by 55 inches
to make a group quilt.
That's my contribution above.
Except I was a bit slow off the mark, and Karen had already finished the quilt
before I sent her the strip.
So I auditioned some solids and came up with that bright green
and then made some half square triangles, 5 inches unfinished
which I sewed into a star, trying to match up the skinny strips in the inside blocks
auditioned some borders
and finally came up with the quilt you see at the top of the post.
Karen is generously giving away her World Quilt,
named because it has contributions from all over the globe.
I'm giving mine away too, once it is quilted.
It's destined for a yet- unknown baby.
