Crooked strings........

I finished the binding on this quilt tonight.  I wash my batik fabrics (I don't wash any others) so that always makes a crooked end on them.  When I do the clean up cut it is generous (1" - 1.5") and that is what I used for this quilt and another similar one (see here).  This quilt is about 58" x 68.5".

The colors are so soothing and just flow through the quilt. Nothing crooked about them now!

Love, love this. I have only made a couple string quilts but not like this, in the horizontal rows with vertical strings. You know, I really don't need more ideas but I am so glad you shared this one!
