Remember I gave you some tips on sorting and using those scraps - there was a pile of strings in that photo mix. Well they have been used in various projects from small ........
those tiny rainbow log cabin blocks with 1/2 inch logs - paper pieced of course. To medium.......
more scrappy log cabin blocks with 3/4 inch logs which I am free sewing. To large .......
scrappy half log cabin blocks set in a 'magestic mountains' pattern. This is my entry into the String Fever challenge over at Stitched in Color . It is a good size couch quilt - 60" x 72" for my son's cabin.
Lots of different size strings used up in this. Usually the 'chimney' of cabin blocks are red, but I chose to use black chimneys as this is to be a 'manly' quilt. I kept to just a simple random straight line quilting with black thread on top and bottom.
I used a textured black for the back -'Compliments' by SSI. This will make for a great snuggle quilt by the fireplace at the cabin. - hey, they had 3 feet of snow at Whiteface Mt. on Memorial Weekend!
