Mom’s strings

oct09 014

My S-I-L, Phyllis, unearthed a nice size stack of string pieced blocks. Mom has been working on sewing these for awhile.

Phyllis took over and set the top together. She did a lovely job, I don’t know that I would have stayed sane working with such small border strips.

I love a scrappy quilt and this one has everything in it. The paper-pieced blocks are about 5”. There are 130 of them in the top.

Mom was thrilled when she got to see the top.

I machine quilted large roses, border to border.

Now Phyllis just needs to get the binding sewn and mom will have a new beauty to keep her warm.
