My stack of blocks-
Finished! It is 81 x 90 inches finished- whew! One of the biggest I've ever made! I used a yellow and gray polka-dot on the backing. It was tough to choose a backing that didn't scream "baby quilt!"
I have always loved string quilts, but since I usually choose more large scale, modern prints, I always feel like I shouldn't cut them into little bitty strings. So, I thought that my stack of 1930's reproduction fabrics would be perfect! I love how it turned out. I had hoped to get a picture of the quilt outside in the sunshine, but it has been raining here for two days, so I guess that's just the way it goes.
(**updated- finally got some good pictures outside in the sunshine, so I changed the pictures just in time for the String Fever Festival of Strings at Stitched in Color)
