Carnival String Quilt
So, this quilt is going to be so happy and cheerful! It's for a client... she saw the scrappy string quilt Jennifer made quite a while ago and wanted one like it. The colors are bright and fun... it's going to be a great quilt!
I'm using the foundation piecing method to make the blocks. I think it's easier than tearing away paper, but it does add a bit of weight to the overall quilt. The fabric strips are cut anywhere from 4" to 1". This will be a queen sized quilt with 9 blocks across by 10 down.
My client also requested to have some of the purple minkee fabric in the blocks. I'm adding various widths of it in each block and then I'll make a random pattern with it overall when the quilt blocks are done.
So far, I have 32 out of the 90 needed! I'm trying to make some each day to try and spread out the work.
