This is Rita and I'm getting started on my second string quilt. These are a “bunch” of strings/strips that I’ve had for years … some of them are leftover from previous projects and some were cut from fat quarters. Most of them (if not all) are novelty prints with a patriotic theme. I'm sure there is enough here for more than one. I am SO glad that I am finally going to put them into a quilt … clearing out the old to make room for the new!
Again, I’ll be using recycled dryer sheets for foundation, but I haven’t decided on a design. I may use a white string in the middle with red strings on one side and blue on the other. Or I may use sashing and cornerstones as Kaaren @ The Painted Quilt did in her quilt. I guess I'll figure it out as I work along!
