"String Quilt" 36" x 48", assembled by Pam Geisel, January 2013
Many years ago I participated in a block swap where we each made twelve string blocks 12.5" x 12.5" large. Then we sent them to one person who divided them up and sent us twelve different blocks.
Recently I was contacted by someone from the Children's Museum of South Dakota. They have a sod house exhibit that has a small bed inside and asked if I could make a quilt for it. I remembered the swap blocks and agreed to make something for them.
I assembled the squares into rows and sewed those together, quilted it, then made a scrappy binding to finish it.
The wonderful women who were a part of this block swap are:
Pamela Boatright, Pamela Quilts
Kym Delmar, Kimbuktu
Dayna Evert, Threaded Expressions
Karri Anastasia Gravina, Vintage Sew and So
Akiko Kunst, With Hugs & Stitches
Amy Perrin, Perennial Piecer
Michelle Rollins, Dragonfly Stitches
Nancy Tanguay, Uniquely Nancy
Barbara J. Wood, DownHome Designs
Robin Woods, Whimbrella
