Basket Weave String

Stash report day. I've missed the last few weeks but am ready to get back in.
It's been a month since I last reported. No new fabric in. And I did a little sewing but mostly I donated some fabric that I was gifted with a few years ago. Maybe a lesson there if someone gives you their ugly fabric because they will never use it you probably won't find a use for it either. So I removed and used 21 yds from my stash. So for my yearly total I'm at.....

50 yds 33" Busted


Just this morning I sewed the blocks for this string quilt. I started it around the first of the year. I love the basket weave pattern and am surprised at the effect.

And look how lucky I am this little quilt I made last year fits almost perfectly on my new table. Feels good to be almost settled in the new house not too many boxes left to unpack.

I love the Basket Weave String quilt. The scraps look so good. I am wondering about the colours. Are the bright of pastel? And did you select every fabric to match the rest or did you just randomly pick fabric from your stash? I want to make a scrapquilt myself, but I am worried that it will be to much of a circus of colours.

The quilt on the table is absolutely perfect. And string quilts, nothing is more fun to make than a string quilt, and it's scrappy too, the basket weave effect is great!

What a great way to use scraps and it looks so nice. The table quilt is a beauty! Good for you!

I love your strings! I posted my strings today also. I love sewing without pressure that strings allow.
