Green string center quilt

I started off with the intention of speed piecing string blocks for a green string block quilt. However, my calculations were off, and I didn't like the finished blocks for a complete quilt. But I DID like the blocks. So I built a quilt around them.

This quilt is now twin sized, and measures at 67" x 74". (Before washing, it measured at 71" x 79"--and no, I don't prewash my fabrics!) I forgot to take a picture of the back, but I quilted in straight diagonal lines in the center medallion, and the rest was a large meandering quilting stitch.

Here's a close-up of the binding. Love it!

As I type this, it is on its way to the Bronx, to be given to the homeless.

 I truly hope and pray some little boy or girl is blessed by this. :)


  1. That quilt turned out just right! It will make anyone smile that sees it.
    Good idea to pray for each quilt sent out, God knows the heart of recipient.

  2. It is lovely and cheerful - it will brighten someone's day!

  3. giggling very much over here at the sewing kitten!

  4. You make such beautiful quilts!! Love this one.

  5. Love the color combinations. Anyone who receives this quilt will love it too. It looks snuggleable ..(lol)..
