Spiral

Does this count as a string quilt???  It WAS constructed of random width strips sewn round and round.
Obviously it's a work in progress, but if I show it here I might feel like I should keep going.  I have been really bogged down this fall sewing things I needed to sew rather than things I wanted to sew.  That's going to change now!

This is my third spiral.  I was inspired by the quilts of Kristin Miller, a Canadian quilter.  She doesn't have a blog that I know of, but if you are interested, her website is www.kristinmillerquilts.com.

this is great, Lori. I'm not a gatekeeper here, so if you think it's a string quilt, its a string quilt. It's a lovely spiral, and thanks for pointing us to Kristin Miller.

This is so definitely a string thing. Do you square them up when done or put them together with kite shapes? Tell all. Thanks.
