Carnival String Quilt Top

Carnival String Quilt - detail
Well, I finally got all 90 blocks sewn and yesterday I finished sewing all the blocks and rows together! This is one massive quilt... it's 90" x 100" now, but I know it will shrink a little once it's quilted and washed.

It's 9 rows by 10 rows and each block is 10.5" unfinished.

I love the scrappy look of it all! Now, I'm off to work on the backing (and there's a special message that is a part of that). I have to say, I'm actually looking forward to making that, it should turn out really neat!

Hi there! I linked to your blog through Rachel's at psiquilt. You guys have done some AMAZING work!! Your blog is so inspirational - I've purchased a lot of the Nicey Jane fabrics and love what you've done with it! Might have to try out that quilt or the Claire dress for my niece. Will be visiting regularly :)

I love it! So happy and colorful. I just completed my first string quilt and I have to say that it was so much fun. The log cabin was my favorite block but I think it's been replaced by the String block! I will be listing my quilt in my etsy shop later this week. Love your blog as well!!
