"Critter Comfort" - DONE



The back is as attractive as the front - just goes to show - use that old fabric you've been saving and put it on the back.  I was concerned I'd have "wrong" fabrics next to other "wrong" fabrics.  Nope - it's all just fine and dandy!   The narrow "sashing" adds  appeal - again, I used a variety - makes things interesting!  The  quilt binding is black with a tiny lime green flange, sewn down on the front.  I found it impossible to keep my stitches from showing in a wrong place on the back. Half showed on the black binding, half on the backing - was unable to sew consistantly. Perhaps a slightly wider binding?  Sharpies can be used for many things.  8-)

Love this!
It is amazing what you can do with random bits of this and that. You've created a real winner!

I so love this quilt! Strings rule, and the quilt as you go method is just fun and fast!

I just love this project! Would you mind my asking what size blocks you used in this quilt. It just appears so balanced. Thanks

What a nice finish. String type quilts always have a cute touch of whimsy when adding novelty fabrics.

I love string quilts! They make great donation quilts and I usually make a couple each year, but I don't quilt as I go. Do you think it saves time doing it the way you did? I might want to change my system.
