summer day string quilt



This quilt top was made last year in a very cold unheated attic. It is finally quilted and bound and will be auctioned at our church for Appalachian Service Project funds.
I love this quilt; it has had several intended recipients, I kept changing my mind.
That morning glory print in the border of the detail is one of my all time favorite fabrics--I believe it was an early Hoffman.
And, shadows! We had sun when I photographed it!

The string quilt is very pretty. What size are the blocks? I hope it makes lots of money.

I just finished quilting one yesterday. Hope to get the binding on today.

the quilt is so gorgeous. I NEED to make a string quilt.
I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one who changes their mind many times before it is given away. I do that too.
