String Challenge #2: Patriotic RBW

DSC00887

Time to get started on my second string quilt.  These are a “bunch” of strings/strips that I’ve had for years … some of them are leftover from previous projects and some were cut from fat quarters.  Most of them (if not all) are novelty prints with a patriotic theme.  I am SO glad that I am finally going to put them into a quilt … clearing out the old to make room for the new!

Again, I’ll be using recycled dryer sheets for foundation, but I haven’t decided on a design.  I may use a white string in the middle with red strings on one side and blue on the other.  Or I may use sashing and cornerstones as Kaaren @ The Painted Quilt did in her quilt here.

I’m posting this on Stacie’s It’s a String Thing Challenge; and I’m also participating in Stephanie’s No Strings Attached challenge.

Happy quilting!

  1. I'm really looking forward to seeing this one take shape. It'll be the first patriotic string quilt I've seen.
