My quilt full of String Ornaments is finished, and I love it!  It feels clean and modern, but still very Christmasy and cozy.

The various white-on-white background fabrics were all from that 12 lb. box from the Fat Quarter Shop last month.

I used the backing fabric to make the binding.

And, yes, it’s been inspected.
