Quilting another string quilt

Today I have been quilting a string quilt belonging to a member of a quilt group I belong to.  The solid blocks were uninteresting and made the rest of the quilt look a bit drab.  So I spiced it up with Aurifil variegated thread.  I think it adds sparkle and interest.

I had to avoid the intersections because of the bulky seams.  They wouldn't go under my hopping foot, so I am having to place the pattern as best I can.


  1. Lovely quilting design and the thread choice really does add the necessary sparkle! Great job :)

  2. The variegated thread is quite nice. Pretty quilting pattern.
