String quilting!!!!

Oh boy I've wanted to do this for, like, ever. I just took a moment tonight. It was so much fun! I'm the kind who loves scrounging AND loves jigsaw puzzles, and this is both. I used an old dress that was practically threadbare for the foundation pieces. I was going to use 12"x12" squares, but that was impractical because the strings would have to be too long, so I cut that in half. I love the lack of planning and I love the way they look! This is a project that can be kept somewhere and gradually added to until one day there's enough for a quilt.
