The quilts shown here were mostly made from scraps - leftovers from other projects. I love the jewel tones in both quilts. By the way, if you also like reading, you might enjoy my recent post about The Friendship Star Quilt (HERE), a novel by Patricia Kiyono and Stephanie Michels.
|This is called a string quilt.|
|Each square consists of a bunch of odd-sized strips of fabric|
sewn diagonally across a backing square (a "foundation")
with a black diagonal strip across the middle. When joined together,
the resulting squares look like they're framed in black.
|Creativity can be messy (at least the way I do it!)|
The white dots on each square are stick-on labels that
I use to keep track of which square goes where.
