Kite Strings Quilt

I just finished putting the binding on my newest quilt.

I played with the idea of using half square triangles to make kite string ties over a year ago, but I couldn’t decide how I wanted to make the strings.

Then about a month or so ago I was looking at vintage quilts and noticed a lovely Irish Chain quilt and had a light bulb moment.  It would be a perfect string!

The Irish Chain turned out to be little 4 patches… but the idea was the same.

I love the cheerful 30′s fabric for the backing which even has a little kite flying boy.

The quilting, done by my very talented Aunt Karen, evokes the whimsy of the wind on a perfect kite day.

I’m still working on the pattern and hoping to have it available soon… for sure a baby quilt size, like I made, and pretty sure in twin size as well.  I think the pattern would look perfect on a child’s bed.
