Granny's String Quilt Completed
I am so excited to have finished Granny's String Quilt this week. I am very pleased with the way it turned out and I know she would be also!
In this close up you can see the quilting pattern - Daisy Bounce - using a variegated pastel thread and I used four different fabrics for the binding.
I really liked the way Granny used even her leftover Christmas fabrics and threw a lot of reds in. With the thirties fabrics, they just blended in and gave a little accent to the quilt.
Here is the back. I had several blocks that were not large enough for the front so I just made a little backart, wanting to use all her fabrics. The yellow border was also in the box with her other fabrics strings.
Here is a close up of the back showing the quilting a little better. So much fun to finish a project!! Granny would be proud of it!
