Hi, I’m Judy. This is a simple string quilt I recently made. I made it using scraps that I had inherited. I inherited the scraps from my mother when she passed. I am 73 and just beginning my journey in quilting. There are 34 yellow and orange squares and 96 blue and purple squares. It went together quickly. It was given to our minister that was retiring. This picture was taken before the backing was put on. I think the light coming through the top makes it look like stained glass.
There is no pattern. This came to me in a dream, and I just had to do it. I think the blocks finished out at 6 inches each. I recently moved to a retirement community in Norman, Oklahoma. When I was in high school, I wanted to take woodshop, but girls were not allowed, so I ended up in home economics. When my daughter was small, I made most of her clothing and really enjoyed it. Now, I would rather make something like a quilt that doesn’t have to fit a certain body.
I really enjoy the creative part of quilting and would rather use scraps than yardages. Kinda like getting something for nothing. Thanks for taking interest in my project!
