Bars Quilt



Here’s a quick quilt I started when I joined stash busters this spring. I finished it last month. I plan on using it for a throw in the living room. It's made from scraps that go with that room. I think I will put 2 knots of black embroidery thread on each bar. And quilt in black thread on the long strips. And around each bar.

I love this quilt. How wide was your sashing between the bars?

Nice & scrappy - what do you mean, " I think I will put 2 knots of black embroidery thread on each bar."

Ohh, like those colors. :)

They look like Lucy fur tones, actually. Maybe if she sheds on it, it won't show. lol

Nice quilt and nice colors...I love scrappy quilts, pretty much all I make!!

I'm wondering about the black embroidery thread comment too. Is that part of the quilting??
