String quilts

  How is your week going?I had lots of fun with my strings. I finished and washed the Butterfly String quilt.
I love washed crinkled quilts. The picture below is before I washed it.
Quilt hot out of the dryer.
 
   I quilted my blue, yellow and green string quilt. I am so happy with how the quilting turned out.
 Blue and yellow scrappy backing.
Happy quilting,
Millie

What a lovely string quilt both before and after washing, but I agree with you it looks great all crinkly !
Did you use cotton batting in this?

Millie said...

Thanks Mystic Quilter. Yes, I used 100% cotton batting on this one. I wash my quilts in the washing machine and throw them in the dryer. I know it it is a big "no no" but I like my quilts crinkled. lol

Oh Millie--I think your butterfly quilt is just lovely. Do you quit on a regular machine or longarm--your quilting looks terrific...hugs, Julierose

Hi Millie, greetings from Northern Ontario. Beautiful quilt. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Nicely done! Love both of your quilts.

What lovely quilts. I do like quilts with white background. Yours are particularly delightful - more white than stripes. Great idea!

Beautiful quilts! I especially like the quilting pattern on the butterfly one. Great job~
