Quilt 145 - 2009 Gig Harbor Quilt Festival String Scrap Quilt
String Scrap Quilt
50" X 76"
When you do something 2 years in a row people think it should be a tradition. We were given a puzzle that was framed to make a companion quilt for the Gig Harbor Quilt Festival (http://www.gigharborquiltfestival.org/) auction this year. The puzzle has a Singer sewing machine and a string quilt in it. After finding blue fabric with white polka dots Adele went to work making string scrap blocks.
The blocks were sashed and corner stones were added like the picture. The quilting was a Baptist Fan quilting pattern so on the way out to Pacific Beach, WA for an American Hero Quilt Sewing Day(http://www.americanheroquilts.com/) we stopped in Ocean Shores. Our friend Jean had a Groovey Board with the Baptist Fan design so we quilted the quilt there. Thanks, Jean! The quilt was bound while at the ocean so it is ready for the auction.
