Something on an episode of Fons & Porter made me actually write down a quilting bucket list. I'm still not entirely sure what made me add "string quilt" to that list, but it's on there. I didn't think I'd like doing a string quilt, as it is so random and chaotic. But I actually found the process highly enjoyable. I liked to do a set of blocks when I had had a rough day; it was great stress relief.
I used 8" foundation squares of muslin. I used almost exclusively strings from my I Spy quilts & swaps. There are a few floral prints and a polka dot or two, but it's mostly I Spys. I'm not sure if you can tell by the picture, but I used scrappy binding as well, so I used up 5 different ends of bindings!
I did find that strings become never ending. I started with a gallon ziplock full of strings, made this entire quilt, meaning 36 8" squares of strings, and my bag is still full!!
I plan to take this one to Project Linus as well, and I hope someone has fun finding all the different stuff in there!
