My first finished string top!


I finished this a few weeks ago.  I love it!! Although after sharing it, I realized I need to add another row to the sides! it's too long for the width!

Love it especially the nine patch corner stones!

Strings even in the sashing and cornerstones make this a wow quilt!

Happy and bright. Well done! I agree, another row wider might be nice.

Beautiful color combinations. Always like to see the little 9-patch cornerstones, they are fun. Must put those on my next scrappy string quilt.
Thank you for sharing ;-)

Like everyone else, I love the nine-patch cornerstones and string sashing! I did this once with a "regular" block be never thought of using it with string blocks. What a lovely quilt it makes. Clever you!

I love this quilt especially as it has the 9 patch with the string quilting

Gorgeous! And the little 9-Patches are the icing on the cake!

I love your quilt with the sashing and 9 patch corners. I have a small project and thought I would try your sashing...disaster! None of my sashing strips were the right size and not one of my corner squares matched up LOL! Maybe we could get a tutorial on this process? I think there are a few of us who want to try this. Great quilt!

I do agree with your comment about the width vs length ratio. That said, I love, love, love your quilt! I used the same sashing on a sampler quilt and was very pleased with it, but, your quilt is more snazzy!
