Lately, it seems as though all I do is show you finishes. One day soon, I hope to have some more interesting content, but I haven’t had much energy lately, and it seems like all I can do to post occasionally about what I’m making. So many of you are more inspirational! I’ll try to get back there.
I had fun setting and quilting my favorite string blocks in a new way. The gray is Kona Ash. The thread is Coats and Clarks, an older spool that was the perfect colors. It worked out well that I have this to add to my Etsy shop, because a few days ago I sold the aqua and gray chevron quilt that I had there. It went to Denmark, which seems fun. My quilts have been so many places I haven’t yet!
I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. The quilting could be more defined. (I think it’s better in person than in these photos.) What if I had had the patience to use decorative stitches in the solid areas? Hmmm.
Hope you’ve had some good finishes lately. I’m linking up with Finish It Up Friday, at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I really like that setting — I don’t think I’ve seen string blocks laid out like that before.

I think nothing is more inspirational than seeing finishes and sales!!! Good for you! Love the colors in this one. You are motivating me to make a string quilt.

That’s a lovely design! Hope it’s ok to pin it for future reference x

Gorgeous quilt, and really cool setting for the strings, Valerie! Decorative stitches would look really nice on the solid background maybe with contrasting thread?
