Strings Quilt

I finished a quilt! It's about time. This one is just fun. When I organized my scrap boxes awhile back, I realized that I had a lot of blue and pink scraps that were already cut into strips. I gathered them up and started sewing them together. My only vision was to have long vertical strips. 

I didn't square anything up as I sewed and eventually, things were becoming pretty wobbly and wonky. I wanted it to be that way but I did have to take in some seams to avoid a bulging center. 

Originally, I had machine quilted this but I ended up hating it. I ripped out the machine quilting and hand quilted it with perle cotton thread instead. I love how the quilt looks and feels now! Finished size is 55" x 66". What a fun scrap busting project!
