seriously, if I weren't challenged, I'm not sure I would finish some of the quilts that dance around in my head!



This quilt is 11" X 14 1/2"

When I heard the challenge was strings, I saw strings as feathers on an egret and this quilt was born Smiley

I blogged about it here http://shout4joy-shouting.blogspot.com/2014/01/project-quilting-string-challenge.html

Stunning. Wow! I should pay more attention to the challenges. I'm glad you made this and I'm even more glad it was inspired by Craftster. This place is awesome, and this is evidence!
