290 string projects made by 78 of the 151 participants. WOW. Quilts, wallhangings, table runners, needle books, book covers, sachets, tissue holders, pot holders, tea cozies, placemats, bags, pouches, doorstop, scissor holders, pincushions, camera case, Kindle covers, quillow, baskets--endless creativity from such a fantastic group!!! I'm just sorry I couldn't highlight each and every project but I hope you visit the participants on my side bar and see some of their creations.
This post also everyone reading this post (not just participants) the opportunity to vote on one project from each category--String Quilts and Non-Quilt String projects. While viewing these projects please excuse any photos that aren't clear. Some didn't "translate" as well from one blog to another. I've provided each maker's link so you can go visit and see the "first generation" photo and read about the project before casting your vote on my side bar. I've received permission from most everyone to share their projects--to those of you I was unable to contact or you were unable to reply to me (summertime is vacation time) I hope you don't mind me sharing your project.
Grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the parade. Prize winners will be announced on July 4th.
