My customer Tina has made a beautiful Kaleidoscope String Quilt using the tutorial by Film in the Fridge. String quilts are a wonderful way to use up lots of small scraps. While they are quite simple to make, I can vouch for the fact that they take quite a while to make - I have an unfinished String Quilt in my UFO pile. I am sure you will agree that Tina has made a wonderful quilt with striking fabrics and colours.
I quilted Tina's quilt with an all-over design called Windy Meander which is a great swirly pattern.
Sometimes my customers have problems finding an appropriate backing for their quilt top. Tina on the other hand succeeded in finding the perfect backing fabric for this String Quilt. Both the colours and pattern tie in beautifully with the quilt top. The fabric she used was Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party - Up All Night in Blue.
This was Tina's first quilt completed in 35 years - I hope this will be the first of many more quilts Tina.
