a colorful (and slightly wonky) string quilt top

Thank you. Truly. You all are so nice, and left such sweet comments about my grandfather. I really appreciate it.

I haven’t really been doing much sewing this week, though I do have photos of the Anna Maria Horner voile string top that I sewed together last week.


It’s made out of most of the prints from her Little Folks line, which I’m really quite taken with. The colors, the prints, the feel of it – I just love it! (I’m even thinking about ordering a little more just to make sure I don’t run out!)


I made 10″ string blocks (tutorial here), but instead of keeping the strings completely straight, I went for a wonky look. It’s not super wonky — just enough to give it a little extra something something.


Still working on a backing, but hopefully I’ll get something figured out soon because I’m looking forward to seeing this one finished!
