I told you about the Neptune Honey Buns I purchsed a while ago. Here is what I made from it. I didn´t want to waist a single inch and so I made a string quilt (hardly inspired by this)
I quilted it with uneven lines and I really like the style of it, but not the making of straight lines, I prefer stippling. The back is just randomly pieced together, I nearly like the back as much as the front...
Unfortunately it is a little narrow, so it has a strange size. But I wanted it to be long enough to cover my feet, when I am snuggeling under it on the couch. I had to cut of a bit on the sides, as it was somehow wonky and I tried my best to even it. Well I really like how it looks, I added some teal, green, light brown, aqua and white to "stretch" the honey bun. Because I gave the second one a good friend who totally fell in love with it...
I have to say, I don´t like the honey buns. These narrow strips don´t show the fantastic fabrics enough and you don´t have so many possibilities to work with them (well I don´t know many...)
I really love my Neptune String Quilt.
Thanks for looking!
