Quilt 22 - Scrappy String Bars

 I got the idea for this quilt from Gwen Marston's book, Liberated String Quilts.
 I had quite a few 'strings' and scraps of reproduction fabrics and cut them into 7" pieces, sewed them together, and just kept on with sections until I had the size quilt I desired.
 I put the borders on like you see on antique quilts sometimes - both borders sewn on together without mitering, so you have the inner border go out in the outer border. I like the look for a change!
Here is my scrappy back - as usual - with even a pieced sleeve at the top. A fun quilt and a great way to use up strips.
