I'm almost done with the Red String.
Yesterday while watching Bonnie's Quilt Cam, I was able to finish putting the rows together.
What better time to work on a scrap quilt than watching the Queen of scrap quilts.
Just love the look of this pattern. It looks like it would be challenging to assemble but really its not.
The pattern has a plain border but was thinking about using the leftover strips and cutting them down to 2" strips to finish out to be 1 1/2". Insert that strip between the background fabric for the border.
Hard to decide cause I like the look of both ways.
I added 2 rows to make it square. Right now before border it's
84" x 84"
Can go with the suggested 6" border to make the quilt
96" x 96"
go with a slightly larger, say 7" or 71/2"
to make the finish size 98" x 98"
I'm leaning towards slightly larger border, thinking the small filler strip set would be less dominant.
I don't normally make the same pattern more than once but I can see myself making this one again. It is a great stash (scrap) buster.
And there are a lot of memory fabric in this quilt and will be a keeper.
