Late last week I finished up my baby-sized string quilt. Then one day I dashed out between the snow and the sleet to take a few pictures.
The blocks are 9 inches, pieced on paper. The sherbet colors are all strings from my bins, but the cream floral was yardage. It was a good use for an older piece of fabric, and I had just enough.
This was inspired by the batik backing I had left over from Disappearing Pinwheels.
I stitched between all the blocks with the walking foot. Then I flipped it over and quilted all the dragonflies, using white Sulky rayon in the bobbin. (Well, I skipped the side-view dragonflies, because I found they didn’t look like anything identifiable from the front.) The Sulky isn’t very heavy, so the design on the front is subtle, but I like it that way. It’s there if you look for it.
I used a green with a variegated stripe for the binding. No new techniques this time, except for a different layout for the string blocks.
Hope you are enjoying the satisfaction of finishing things this week.
