a quilt for sara-jane

my sajee finally has her own quilt, and she has our friend lilito thank for it. lili posted a photo of a cushion she was making using string blocks, and i thought it looked kind of great, so i had a go at it myself. it got kind of addictive, and this was the result:

i used heaps of scraps, and some carefully selected fat quarters, and i think it came together pretty well:

and the blue contrasts nicely with the oranges and yellows

but most importantly, it gets the tiny dog’s tick of approval:

p.s. if you want to have a try at a string quilt yourself, here are a couple of tutorials:
