Happy Scrap String Quilt
I am addicted to working with scraps and seeing what I can produce.
I recently finished this scrap string quilt. I sewed many various width strips of scrap strings and then joined them with scrap pieces of a blue batik which had been cut of a backing of another quilt when preparing that quilt for binding. I purposely kept the blue strips different widths and didn't straighten the edges either so as to produce a wonky look to the piecing. The side edges were constructed from some of my scrap 4'" blocks cut into half square triangles. I only quilted along the blue pieces stitching in about 1/8" from each edge. It has given the effect of binding applied between each block of scraps. I also quilted the blue triangles in the same method.
At a recent regional day someone commented that it looked a happy quilt hence the title to this blog post.
