I basted my string quilt today. I love this quilt. It isn't just my new favorite but it may be my most favorite of all the quilts I've made. Yes, I'd say it is! It has so many of my favorite fabrics in it. I love looking at it. I think I am also really happy with it because it was completely stress free making it. I just grabbed my strings and strips and away I went and through caution to the wind. I see another in my future for sure.
(I dropped my camera and broke the lens so I had to use our old camera. These pics aren't the greatest. I apologize for that.)
I backed it with the last big piece I had of my favorite vintage sheet. I used this on the back of the Honky Dory Whirlygig quilt. It's funny how the simplest of things make me very happy. To me this is the best quilt ever and it's not even finished yet. I'm glad I get to keep it!!
So how should I quilt it? I was thinking 1/4 inch lines on each side of the horizontal and vertical seams. hmmmm... what do you think?
Also wanted to add I appreciate the comments and opinions about pre-washing. It's good to discuss these things:)
