Blogger's Quilt Festival: Scrappy Strings Quilt

scrappy strings quilt

It's time again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.  If you're visiting from there, welcome, and if not, you should go check it out.  There's so many great quilts to look at and reading their stories is so much fun.

Anyway, this is my entry for the Scrappy Quilts category, and it is the scrappiest quilt I've made.  These strips were from the tear off bucket at the fabric shop I worked at briefly.  When we got new bolts in we'd rip off a few inches because the initial cut from the factory can be very warped.  So this quilt is a little bit of every fabric we got into stock during my months there.  

The quilting on this one is also special to me.  It was the first thing I quilted after coming back from QuiltCon.  I was so full of inspiration and new knowledge, and I just pumped it all into this quilt.  It was super fun to do.

You can read my other post about this quilt here.  And go check out all the quilts in the festival!
