Bright Strings

I finished the Bright Strings top tonight - I don't have anywhere in the apartment that I can take a good picture at night so this was the best I could do - the top is folded in half and thrown across the top of the door to my studio. I REALLY miss the lighting in my studio in Marietta. The string colors are a little overly vivid - they're not quite that bright in person.

Your bright stripes are just gorgeous! I am hooked on stripes at the moment - thanks to you ;-)
After surgery I will do more.

I love the green sashing. It sets off the bright colors perfectly. Well done!

What a great quilt! Love the colors, and varied sizes. I've read your blog for some time now. I hope you're getting more settled in. You do some very lovely work.

Love it! I have a bunch of 10 inch batik squares that we were supposed to stack a deck on for a guild challenge. I used some, still have many more. Do you suppose I could adapt this quilt to use those fabrics? Are these on a foundation or just pieced?

I like the movement you've created with the wedge shapes and the colors are so very cheery on gloomy days.

This is a terrific quilt!! Just what I needed to see on a frigid, cold day here in NJ! Do you have any thoughts on how you plan to quilt it? Please post a picture when it is finished. I love the colors!

The colors are wonderful - just like all your quilts! You are doing great at finding ways to display the quilts for photos. And I love the Online Photo Album - great idea.

I said it in a previous post and I'll say it again - I love the colors in that quilt. How could someone look at that quilt and not smile???
