No strings, Day 8

I am so happy to present “All strings attached” to you - a finished string quilt without any loose ends whatsoever. It measures approx 30”*30” and fits my coffee table perfectly

At some point I thought I was never going to make it as the much needed stitching in the ditch turned out to be a nightmare. I have the wonder-stitch-in-the-ditch-foot, but I couldn’t get the needle position right and no matter what colour thread I tried it stood out like a sore thumb. I ended up with a blue/grayish thread between the blocks and white between blocks and border. It’s ok; it’s finished! Never mind the black smudge in the border and a tiny hole in the binding which I have no idea how got there; the hole is darned and the smudge will stay until it gets washed in the future.

Now I’ll pop over to Loft Creations and leave a message.-)

  8. Så herlig denne ble. Har ikke vært innom deg på en stund, antar denne er en bit av en utfordring. Takk for tipset med "pressing" av quilter.
