I have a stash that most quilters would laugh at. All of my fabric fits into a single dresser drawer. Many of the pieces were smaller than 1/4 yard. Inspired from the last Blogger's Quilt Festival, I decided to make a couple of scrappy quilts. The first was based on 2" squares. That left me with some chunks of fabric and lots of long pieces less than 2" across. I decided to try string blocks.
I made a block or two; from that figured how much material (and what colors) I had and designed the quilt from there. I was going to add borders as a throw quilt, but friends and family convinced me to keep it this size as a wall hanging.
I have admired several quilts with circular quilting and took the plunge to try it myself. I love how it came out!
I never intended to keep this quilt. The whole intent was to play, learn, practice and get rid of my leftover material. Once I was convinced to make it a wall hanging, I decided to donate it to a local fundraiser. I hope String Theory's owner will enjoy it as much as I did making it. The fundraiser is later this summer, so I am enjoying it while it remains in my possession.
