The Biggest Quilt Yet!

I've been doing string quilts for about 5 years now and so far this is the biggest quilt yet.  My youngest son recently bought a house and right away I knew he needed a bedspread.  I had plenty of fabrics from various African styled quilts and I wanted to make a string quilt for him.  He wanted it BIG as he doesn't want to contend with a bed skirt and all the "frilly stuff."

I think this quilt is big enough.


His birthday is tomorrow and my youngest turns 35!  Hope he likes it!

Well done!

Your son is one lucky guy to have a mom that makes beautiful string quilts. I love the black with all the browns and pillow cases to match. Well done.
