Loose Threads: Valentine String Heart Quilt

Valentine String Heart Quilt

Happy Valentines Day!

This string quilt is made in much the same way as I did the heart table mat from my earlier post. These blocks measure 8 inches.

Here is a close up of some of the blocks.  I've used all shades of red; anything goes.


For the background I used any string that had a light or neutral kind of background.  You can see some backgrounds with red and green mixed in.

I love using EQ5 to draw quilt designs.  I was planning to machine quilt this along with the heart table mats for Valentine's Day, but my sewing machine had to go to the repairman.   There's always next year.

I hope you are all having a Happy Valentine's Day.

LuAnn, you have made a very cool heart quilt. Too bad your "stitcher" is in the shop. How were you planning on quilting--paisley heart? Or do you have something else in mind?
