Project Quilting Season 5 - #1


 So excited that Kim over at Persimon Dreams is hosting Project Quilting again this year. It was so fun last year and I accomplished a lot.  This year I had so many ideas for this first Challenge. I wanted to do something more arty but when it came down to it I really need to make lap or baby size quilts for some of the charities I contribute to. I am sure I will do something more artsy before the challenge is over but for today I am going with a version of a scrap quilt. 

The Challenge is "String Along with Me"



I used the same strip quilt as you go as I did in a quilt I made last Oct following Maureen Cracknell and her Herringbone QAYG quilt tutorial. 
This was is called Scrappy II  it is 43 x 45. All scrap strings, scrap batting pieces and scrap binding. It might not be very creative but my scrap box is looking so much better!

 (notice the fun fabric I found for the back...lovely dotty diamonds!)
Simple quilting since each strip was quilted right to the batt. I did some decorative stitches on some of the strips with some various colored threads. I love finding a use for those decorative stitches.
