A Quilt with String Borders - more creative life

A Quilt with String Borders

My friend Ruth gave me the center part of this quilt to finish for a good cause. I don’t like square quilts, so I added some borders to enlarge the quilt and make it into a rectangle, which I think is much better for my favorite activities of napping and lounging around doing nothing. The striped borders are made of leftover fabric scraps, although they didn’t make any kind of a dent in my overflowing scrap bin. The quilt is now going to be raffled off to help send students from Sunny’s high school on an exchange trip to Italy.  Thanks for the quilt, Ruth!

If you don’t see the photo, I have applied all my stone-age-level tech wizardry and haven’t been able to figure out this problem. You can see all my blog photos at my blog site: www.morecreativelife.com.

    The fabrics are so amazing in this quilt. We need a “zoom” feature.
