Green Scrappy String Quilt

This was another quilt I recently finished from making quilt blocks long ago that I had put away. I just needed to make a few more blocks and then put it together. I used polar fleece on the back and I sewed a green cotton binding on the quilt. I was thinking of adding an appliqué on this quilt, but when auditioning the appliqué that I had ready, it just looked too busy on this quilt, so decided no appliqué. This quilt measures 41" wide x 42" high. It's a nice size lap quilt for a child.

The blocks are each 8" finished squares.

Backing is green polar fleece
This is the green Polar Fleece I used for the backing. It is very soft and cuddly. Simple serpentine stitching for the quilting.

I love making string quilts! It uses up fabric scraps and it's fun to make. Various ways to set the strings to give it a different look. These blocks are square, but if you saw my last 2 string quilts that I posted recently (the turquoise with appliqué bear and the gray string quilt), those quilt blocks were rectangle blocks and that gave it a different look.

Happy scrappy quilting!
