A friend got me started on these stringy things...
Don't know if she is
more of an inspirational instigator
or trouble-maker, :)but, I do thank you, friend - you know who you are.
Like most quilters, I have plenty of scraps to use...
String Things sure make for great use of scraps.And use scraps I did!
I used some of the great colors of Autumn for my strings -
browns of all shades:
from warm golden browns to deep, almost blackish-browns.Throw in a little Autumnal accent:
brick-y red, some mossy-greenish-teal and dark, stormy blues.I made four- 20" string squares and put them together for
a very nice table-topper size.
Since the strips on top were random in size and spacing,
I quilted using randomly spaced squares also:
Perfect for my Autumn table!
Thanks again, friend, for getting me started with a new addiction.
Just what I needed - another fabric addiction!
Albeit an addiction that's totally worth it!!!
If you do the String Thing, let me know...
I may just have some Autumnal Strings to share!
Happy early October Stitching!
