Sunday Quilt Inspiration: S T R I N G S

Farmhouse kitchen decorated for spring. Mason jars and flowers and reclaimed wood make everything so pretty! Love this story, too. <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a>Before I get to entangled in today's post, I want to tell you that I started a new board "church, pew" which I imagine you can guess is all about church pews and how people are using them in home decor. 

The reason for the board is that I have a couple of pews that we bought three years ago and I need ideas on how to use them in our dining room since I need more seating there. My problem is that the sides on my pews are too tall. So my real goal is to find a way to trim them down or rework them. 

Okay, now for Sunday Quilt Inspiration: STRINGS....
