    String Quilt top completed

    Finally finished my string top. I used almost 2 "Summer House" by Lily Ashbury jellyrolls and paper pieced them. Can't decide if I need a border or not. I do wish it was a little bigger but I don't think I can sew anymore of those squares after almost 8 weeks of sewing strips!

    Very beautiful!! Colorful and full of "energy"


    IMO, a double border would look awesome on your quilt top and make it bigger.

        I LOVE the stripes around the blocks. That would really be great in a narrow (about 2") border, with something else (maybe a coin-type) border using the rest of the jelly rolls.

              Your quilt is wonderful--I love all the colors. By all means add borders to make it the size you want. You've put so much time in this quilt and you deserve to enjoy it! Thanks for sharing!

                Beautiful quilt! Having done such a nice job so far, I would also add a double border. That way the quilt would turn out to your own satisfaction.

                    One of my favorite quilts to do is a string. But I also understand getting tired of it. Take a break for a few days and then come back and view the replies. I think a double border would be charming as well.
                    Lovely fabric in this one!

                      I agree with the others. A double border would frame in this beautiful quilt perfectly. Great job on it!

                          Love the fabric colors. I agree with everyone else. A double border would look good and give a bigger quilt.

                            Love that and the summer house fabrics look wonderful all jumbled together in strings!! Amazing work.
