String Beans

I found this pic of my String Beans quilt and thought I'd post it. It is set but not quilted or bound. This quilt isn't the most traditionally beautiful quilt in the world but it means a lot to me because it was made mostly from scraps my mother left behind. I like the randomness of it, it reminds me that there is beauty everywhere you just have to look. I am quite proud of the workmanship of this quilt. It was a joy to make. Without too much effort all the corners are crisp and the setting lines are even. Hopefully after Christmas I can get it quilted and bound. My son Kevin will probably put dibs on this as he is my oddball, artsy child (25YO, yes Kevin I know you aren't a child but you will always be my baby) with the same sentimental streak as his mom. I'll keep you posted.


  1. I LOVE it! I am sure he will be honored to have such a beautiful piece, steeped in the loving craft of his mom and grandmother -- I know I would ;-)
