All finished! This string quilt was very quick and easy to make. I got to use up a lot of scraps. I sewed on a blue binding. I finally finished the hand sewing of the binding while I was watching TV. American Idol seems to be having big ratings this year. I like The Defenders too. And lots of mindless TV stuff. While I watch TV I usually sew or knit.
I'm busy now free-motion quilting that flannel quilt that I'm working on. I might slow up a bit and try making table runners or something else for a change. And good news--my grandchildren cleaned their closets and I will receive a bunch of old blue jeans. I've made a gallery of photos of denim quilts on my Flickr page. Some folks seem to have success in combining parts of old jeans with fabrics, making charming quilts. I bet I could sew some place mats that way, too. I did make a couple of quilts using blue jeans and they came out OK, but they are very heavy. I thought that only using jeans for parts of the quilt may work out better?
