I have been wanting to make a string quilt so when I saw that Lori at Humble Quilts was going to host a string along, I decided to jump in! My inspiration is this antique quilt I found Pinterest.
I have some scraps left from my dad’s shirts after making quilts for my mom and siblings last year. You can see them here. I’m not sure I have enough, but they will stretch farther with the alternate plain blocks.
My dad’s shirts were mostly poly cotton blends and rather thin. So I decided to try foundation piecing the diamonds on muslin. I’m using this die from Accuquilt to cut the muslin foundations.
I tried our a couple blocks. I used the flip and sew technique, covering the foundation.
This is what the back looked like.
Then I trimmed even with the foundation.
So far, so good!
Have a great day!
