Granny's Strings Making Progress
I have finally taken some time again to work on Granny's String Quilt. I say that because when you quilt for others, it is often difficult to take the time to make your own quilts. In fact, I have had to quit doing custom work, so I can free up some of my time. But today I said, "It is okay, you have quilts to make, so go sew!!" And I did. I added a 2" white border to separate the inside strings from the outer border.
I've been sewing the leftover strings all morning, making sure they were at least 4 3/4" long. I pieced some to make better use of the scraps. I kept sewing them together until the pieces above got much larger then I trimmed the strips down to 4 1/4" wide.
Here's how it will look once I get the border sewn on. Maybe tomorrow, but this afternoon it's back to longarm quilting! I love seeing quilt tops become quilts whether they are mine or other peoples!! Happy Stitching!!
