Sew and Tell Friday #7 and String Challenge #2

DSC01373

I signed up for two string challenges, and this is my second string quilt.  I thought Memorial Day weekend was a good time to finish this one up. I’ll be donating this quilt to the Quilts of Valor program.

I started it way back in March and posted about it here.  It all began with this pile of strings in patriotic fabrics that I’ve had for years.  I still have a bunch left so I’ll be making another string quilt to use them all up … finally!DSC00887

I’m linking up again to Amy's Sew and Tell Fridays … and also posting this on Stacie’s It’s a String Thing Challenge and Stephanie’s No Strings Attached challenge.
