A 1/4 yard will do it for me

Some of my friends might consider me frugal (aka cheap). I used to work in a quilt shop and when a new fabric collection would come out, I wanted it all. Don't we all have that same thing in common? Well, I didn't need to get a yard of each fabric in that collection. That would have been over-the-top for me. Just a 1/4 yard would do the trick. Leaving the store with my sweet little bundle of goodies all tied up in a nice neat bow, I felt like I had won the lottery.
Now with a nice big stash these 1/4 yard cuts (which made me so happy back then) these collections make the prettiest string quilts. I just finished this one from a collection called Let's Celebrate.


  1. What a great quilt. I haven't started a string quilt yet. Maybe today after seeing yours.

  2. THINK economical/thrifty (not frugal/cheap!)
    LOVE these. Just gorgeous! (Louisa)
