Behind the Scenes at Quilting Weekly

These are some of the arrangements that Chris considered before settling on the one shown in the post above. The bold fabric that she used with the selvages looks great! Nice job, Chris :)

Thank you Jean for you compliment. And yes, string pieced quilts do have a similar look.

But I bet you can't read your string quilts like you can with selvage quilts. Reading the name of the manufacture, country or date it was made can really add to the surprise of this type of quilt.
