Quilts sure go together so quickly when you don't have to do a bunch of cutting!
It wasn't that long ago that I grabbed this bag of batik fabric strips I saved from a project I abandoned. I knew they would be perfect for one of my Scrap-A-Palooza quilts.
I have been wanting to go back and revisit the color block string quilt I made back in March of 2014. This time I wanted to place colors so they looked like they were woven into the quilt.
I don't have a lot of batik fabric in my stash nowadays, so I did have to raid a friends stash for a few red and pinks. But I was able to find enough to get the look I wanted.
And thankfully the only batik I had that was big enough for a backing looks great with the top.
This quilt is one of the donation quilts I made for the Hands2Help donation quilt drive at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This one will be going to Happy Chemo.
And there have been a few finishes of this design by others that I don't think I featured once they were completed.
Vicki over at Vicki's Crafts used her green strings and finished up this lovely quilt in January.
She calls it String Beans!
What I great idea to use all one color.
And I don't think I ever shared Alycia's final finish on the one she finished back in June. I love the rows of color!
This is a great pattern for quickly sewing up those string scraps. There are a number of layout options. If you are looking for some ideas for your scraps, don't forget to check out the Scrap-A-Palooza gallery. You will find lots of ideas there!
This quilt was on my list of second quarter finishing goals. A big thanks to the group of bloggers hosting this event this year.
