My Phone Book Quilt

Hi, I'm Lori in North Carolina and my blog is Talk is Cheap Quilts (http://talkischeapquilts.blogspot.com).  I love scrap quilts and string quilts, Tonya's letters and ANYTHING Gwen Marston does.

Here is a lap quilt that I finished recently.  I call it my Phone Book Quilt because I used phone book pages as my foundation (I find that I can sew straighter and faster with a foundation).  Here is just the top:
And here's a picture of the finished product with cat inspection in progress.
Here's a close-up so you can see the quilting.  I used a combination of tying and big stitch.  Oops, there are still a few basting threads in this picture, too!

What a striking pattern for a string quilt! The gold/cheddar really looks nice also!

Great design and love the green focus color.

O.k., I am finding too many really good ideas here. Will there be enough strings to do them all?

I am partial to greens and golds/yellows together so I really, really like your quilt! (and I always love seeing cats on quilts)
