String Challenge #2 ~ Patriotic String Quilt

This is Rita and this is my second string quilt. I started this quilt way back in March, and I thought Memorial Day weekend was a good time to finish it up. It measures 52 x 66 inches so it's a fairly good size.  I’ll be donating this quilt to the Quilts of Valor program.

It all began with a pile of strings in patriotic fabrics that I’ve had for years. I still have a bunch left so I’ll be making another string quilt to use them all up … finally! 

Seems everyone enjoys making these string quilts as much as I do. I just love seeing all the projects ... they're all so inspiring!


  1. I really like this idea for a patriotic quilt! Mind of I steal the idea? Very nice!

  2. What a great quilt! Looks like you had the same roman stripes inspiration that I did. And the Quilts of Valor is such a super charity. You have just inspired me to make one for them too! Thanks.

  3. I love it. I must remember to sort my colors, I usually just toss in everything including the kitchen sink! But the controlled scrap strips really are so much better.......


  4. Love your string. Great job!!

  5. What a great red white and blue quilt.
