String Quilt–Psychedelic


Sorry for my absence, I have been a little preoccupied and obsessively wanted to finish off making the blocks for my new quilt.  All 45 blocks are now completed and all I need to do  is sew it all together (which I plan on doing this weekend)


Browsing all the different blogs online I came across a beautiful String Quilt, aptly named Kaleidoscope by Film in the Fridge and also a great tutorial on how to make the blocks.


DSC00710Talk about easy peasy! this quilt is a paper/foundation  pieced quilt and could not be any easier.  I had a lot of fun using up lots of different scraps that I had left over from other things I have made. 


DSC00711I asked my youngest son if he were to give this quilt a name what would he call it, and he said it was a little Psychedelic looking so that is the name of this quilt!


I am still working away like a little bee on my Union Jack Hexagon quilt and have now basted 70 hexies! only another 430+ to go! and if that wasn’t enough I also started making a new table runner and also bought a lovely little mini wall hanging pattern.  I get the feeling I am turning into one of those woman that has many WIPs.  So I guess without knowing it I just joined the club!


  1. You are so very talented and I love the fabrics you are working with! I use to sew a lot but just baby boutique items. I have never learned quilting. My mother in law quilted some blankets for the boys. Thanx for sharing at THT!

  2. Welcome to the club! Your string blocks look great, and well named.
