strings of color {finished}

All finished, done, no more strings of fabric all over our family room! Yay!!!

I started this quilt thinking it would make a nice picnic blanket. I loved that I could use up some of my scraps and I decided to use dark colored strings for the middle of my blocks simply because I thought dark color would hide picnic stains better. Just being practical here!

As soon as I had some of the blocks on my design wall, my middle daughter "suggested" that we really did not need another picnic blanket and maybe this quilt could be hers? So, it became hers, of course.

There was absolutely no hesitation when it came to choosing fabric for the backing. We bought this adorable kawaii sheet quite a while back and I promised to use it as a backing for her next quilt.

I did some straight line quilting, and bound the quilt using pink washi fabric which I think adds a perfect finishing touch.

I'm submitting this quilt to Bloggers' Quilt Festival which starts tomorrow, May 18th over at Amy's Creative Side.  The Festival is open to everyone and will run for two weeks, so hurry and get your quilt in, too. I can't wait to see all the wonderful talent and inspiration that will be showcased.
