String Quilt Finished!

String quilt

I am so happy to have my string quilt finished! 
Very early in the morning, before too much sun and too much heat,
I went to the garden to take some pictures of this quilt that I will offer
to my daughter, as she "fell in love" with it at first sight!

If I highlight this block, it's because I remember that when I started to select my fabrics for this project, I hesitated and almost decided to put this yellow one away... thanks God I did'nt, it appears to be THE ONE!
It seems to bring sun to my quilt.

Have a sunny Sunday!

  1. Hi Christine! This is so beautiful quilt! I hope to make this pattern one day. Yellow fanrics is really good and it's fun how often the Fabric we concider 'not good' may be just the one to make the difference! x Teje

  2. It's beautiful! Are there good places to get fabrics like this in Greece? (I live in Poland--quilting fabric is "slightly" scarce here (understatement).

    1. Thanks Becky! There are few shops here where you can find quilting fabrics but with very poor choice. Mainly I order them from USA.
