Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

This top was finished a year ago, and after only one year of waiting it's now quilted and binded . Pattern is from Bonnie Hunter and is called Kiss in the corner . Still have about ten tops for quilting , and if I quilt ONLY  1 a month , by the end of the year there would be no quilts on that pile . I wish I could be more persistent;

I'm a scrapocholic and could not throw away any piece of fabrics which could  be used . Result ?  Five pretty large boxes full of strings waiting to be turn into quilts. So I've decided to declare this year into a string block year . This is my kind of leader-ender project ; every day I start my sewing with piecing two blocks of strings . And in no time a have a nice pile of blocks ready to be sewn together. For this quilt I needed  80  of them  (7,5" )  and probably would not add borders . Like it this way, scrappy and colourful


This is not the only string quilt I made this year, the smaller one is basted and  waiting to be quilted this week. Nedless to say;  yes I've started a new string quilt ...
