check out the Festival of strings

I've entered this string quilt in Rachel's Festival of Strings.
Head over there to see some great string quilts,
or maybe post a few of your own.

I'm proud of this one because I introduced many of my local quilting friends
to the joys of strings.
At least a dozen of them contributed 200 or more 6 by 12 inch blocks to me
and together we're making four string quilts out of basically nothing.

I finished the first one and quilted it on my Juki with straight lines and free motion vines and spirals.

I love this quilt. A true scrap buster and a colorful, fun outcome.
Followed your link to the festival. Awesome :D

A fun, happy quilt! Isn't it nice to make something from nothing? And now you've gotten others to do more of the same - sweet!

Thanks for the link to the festival. I'm going there now...
