Setting Myself Up for Success

I just joined a Summer Stash Challenge hosted by Eileen’s Attic (and first spotted on crazy mom quilts), and even though I’m a little late getting started, I figure my string quilt qualifies for the challenge. I started it in July, it’s all from my stash, and maybe by joining the challenge I’ll actually finish it by the end of August (My mother says she’ll believe it when she sees it – even more incentive to get the thing finished!)

I blogged about the string quilt a bit here, but here’s an idea of how I’d like to set it:

Except, you know, without carpeting showing through. I’ll probably use white sashing, or maybe a pale aqua. Not quite sure yet.
