Pink/White String Quilts

Last year I joined a swap over at HGTV for pink and white (only) string blocks ... 6.5" and/or 12.5" blocks. In the end I only sent in the 6.5" blocks .... mostly because of the rising postage rates.


So I made 2 quilts from my 12.5" string blocks. I did make a few extra blocks with aqua centers as I wanted to make a heart shape in the middle.



Here's my 1st String Quilt with the aqua heart shape. I used Hearts and Loops pantograph.












Here's my 2nd String Quilt ...... by the way DH picked out the border/backing fabric. He has such a good color eye .... so much better than me. I used Angel Wings pantograph by Jodi Bemish on the quilt.










Both of these quilts will be donated to charity.

I love those quilts! I am constantly amazed at how simple strings turn into such stunning quilts. Love the idea of the aqua heart in the midst of the other color strips. And the quilting is great!

They both look great! I love seeing all these string quilts and I think the pink ones have turned out really pretty.

Both quilts are wonderful. You have a great eye for colour - I'd never have thought of using the aqua centres and they work wonderfully :)
The receipients of these will be VERY lucky.
